Where I stayed
I go to collect my bags and mam waiting for quite a long time before I realise I am at the wrong carousel. I have done this before and should have learnt to check carefully but ... Finding the right carousel I also find my bags circulating.
Leaving the terminal I take a taxi into the city and very soon we are joining traffic jams. IT is hot and appear to be sat on the sunny side of the car. The driver is unsure what I am doing as I get out of the front seat next to him to get in the back and sit behind him in the shade. Takes a while but arrive at New Siam hot and tired and it is nice to get into the aircon of the room, strip off and have a cold shower.
After a quick rest I leave guest house and take a taxi out to Mo Chit bus station and buy a ticket for the 20:00 bus to Phon Thong tonight. Was thinking about staying here for the night for a rest before traveling on but dont really want to be in Bangkok any longer than necessary. Taxi back to guest house and eat some lunch before retiring to my room where I crash out for the afternoon.
Phone mum and Jai to let them both know I am now in Bangkok and have my bus tickets sorted.
Not really hungry come evening so I buy a snack at 7/11 then taxi back to Mo Chit again.
At the bus station by 18:30 and then have another wait on my hands. The bus arrives on time and is nice and comfy. It leaves just a few minutes late and I must have gone almost straight to sleep as the next thing I know it is 23:20 and we are arriving in Khorat.
