Where I stayed
We got her stuff to the new apartment which is on Sathorn road in a large complex on the 22nd floor. It has a breath-taking view over the city...I took some great pictures from the balconey. It was quite amazing seeing the very alive city from such a high point.
In the evening we went out for some fruit and then hung out at her place for quite a while. Since her landlord might have come late in the evening I didn't stay over but took a meter-taxi home at some point. Plus she had to work yesterday anyway.
Yesterday morning I got up and had breakfast at my guest house (a banana pancake and mixed fruit shake). Then I walked around Banglamphu for a while and decided to get a casual looking suit jacket tailored for a very low price. I shopped around until I found a cheap one and ordered a 2-button casual black tight-fitted 50% cashmere 50% wool jacket. Then I went to a cafe to have a shake on Khao San road, then decided to walk to Phahurat, the Indian district. This took a while, so it was lunch time by the time I got there. I had lunch at Royal India (same place I went to a few weeks ago) and had a very very nice Thali with chicken curry, tandoori chicken, some vegetable dishes, very nice chai masala, the best mango lassi ever, and a sweet desert (don't know the name). Very yummy indeed.
Afterwards I walked back to Khao San road and decided to get an oil massage for an hour at a place nearby. Then it was time for my suit fitting at the tailor. This only took 5 minutes, then it was time to get a taxi to Sathorn road to meet up with Elisabeth
Afterwards we got some fresh fruit and ate that on the way back, then had some joghurt and musli for "dinner". Then just stayed at her place for a while.
This morning we got up quite early and went out to get fresh fruit (papaya and pineapple) and had musli with that and milk. Then I got a Swedish massage from her haha...at least as good as the traditional Thai ;-) Now I had to go back to Khao San to extend my hotel for another night (we will probably stay here tonight and go out in the area) and to get pick up my suit from the tailor pretty soon. I just had a fresh coconut and showered, now I will get some fresh mango and then pick up the suit, then probably head back to Elisabeth's place. Only two days left now! Bye bye!
