It has been an exhausting day on the move. First a yomp across the beach with our luggage, a speedboat ride to Bam Phe from Ko Samet, a motorcyle taxi along the pier, a minibus to Rayong, a quick ride in one of those open sided truck/taxis that I can’t remember the name of, then a two and a half hour taxi to Bangkok.
Anyway here we are in the Viengtai Hotel at the back of Khao San Road, so it’s pretty noisy (the rooms come supplied with ear plugs) and a sloooow internet connection. It’s also limited to three hours, so this post will be brief.
The title of this post is just one of the many slogans you see about the place, this time in the Rayong Shopping Mall on Sukhumvit Road. I think this one was for beds which boggles the mind.
Anyway, my point is that though the English seldom works, the Thais certainly know how to use apostrophes which has to be a major point in their favour.
I also though you might want to see the photo of Ronald McDonald above proving what a universal ambassador of peace and block arteries he is with his typical Thai honorific pose.
Tomorrow will be our last full day in Bangkok as we start our trek to Cambodia and Vietnam on Tuesday. That’s assuming we can arrange Miss P’s visa at the Vietnamese embassy in the morning, so an early start is planned and a long wait anticipated.
