Well, I have been in Bangkok for nearly a week now. It’s been a lovely relaxing week of chilling out at dads, eating yummy Thai food, doing a bit of shopping and reading.
As Dad lives in the whop-whops one of the first things I got him to do was to help me fix up Pats bike I can get around by myself when everyone is at work [Pat is my little stepsister]. I very quickly learnt why Thais don’t generally do exercise outside – its too darn hot! Yep, it was a stupid idea – but out of stubbornness I have ridden it nearly every day!
Favourite site while riding my bike: 2 guys on a bicycle, the back guy was holding 2 panes of glass!!! No helmets, jandals for footwear and they were cycling head on into the traffic! I wish I had taken my camera!
So its all fun and games over here! Megan arrives tonight, we will be playing Tourist in Bangkok for a few days and then will fly to Vietnam on Tuesday (eeeeek I am so excited!!!). I will post some photos of Bangkok before we head to Vietnam.
