Day 4 - evening
Temperature: 30 Celsius
Weather: Hazy sky, warm breeze, gorgeous sunset, full moon
Twilight rapidly fell upon us! I figured this was a good cause to celebrate while watching on the horizon way above the Chao Phraya River the soft glowing light from the sky caused by the scattering rays of the sun!
And no better place to do it than sitting on the hotel's patio terrace along the famous river with drinks in our hands! A beer was ordered for Michel while I chose a more exotic drink…..a strawberry daiquiri!
While relaxing and enjoying the remainder of the day, on the horizon the sun rapidly descended putting the sky ablaze in the process! With camera on hand, I captured this magnetizing moment while getting drunk at the same time with my one and only drink! :-)
Tempted by the hotel’s shuttle boat which was about to leave within minutes, we walked the few meters away that separated the terrace from the pier and with our drinks in our hands, rapidly boarded the craft for a ride on the agitated river. Best part was that once more, we were the only ones onboard to enjoy this romantic evening under the stars with a full moon in view.
Agitated, yes…..the river was! I kept losing my balance while holding tightly to my glass in fear of dropping its content all over me while Michel sitting comfortably on the leather couch couldn’t stop laughing.
I might have been in a cheerful mood singing loudly numerous tunes while holding my drink in one hand and with my other one, my huge DSLR camera! But you know what…..not a single drop fell on me and I managed to take fabulous pictures of the sunset on the horizon while performing my balancing act throughout the entire process. :-)
Darkness soon enveloped us and by 7:00pm, we decided to retreat to our room. It might have been early for you guys back home but I had good reasons to do so. Without telling you anything else, you’ll just have to wait until tomorrow to find out my next thrilling and wild adventure and this, only if I survive to tell you all about it! :-) Monique :-)
