While I was happy the trip was over, 11 hours later,I really didn't mind it, as I knew the whole while it would be an experience to remember, and when the road is finally paved, there will be one less adventure to have
My first impression of Bangkok was at night, and all I can say is that it is a conglomerate consisting of, bumper to bumper traffic (cars, motos, trucks and tuk tuks), trash, bright lights, street peddlers, beggars, all sorts of buildings and structures, temples, stray animals, humidity and pretty girls.
Bangkok by day was not much different, with exception of the bright lights. I spent the day touring around via tuk-tuk and by foot. Walked through some markets, saw the national museum and Grand Palace ans well as a few religious cites. I really don't have too many pictures of the city, as it just seems too hard to get any good shot. i know a photographer would probably strangle me. I will be back here in a week, though and will have my camera ready.
I head north tomorrow by train. It is to be a long journey, but I really don't mind these long trips. You get to see so much of the country. An important thing when it is your first time there.
