Jet lag kicked in yesterday as we stayed in bed till 11:45am only to be woken by the hostel staff since we had to pay for our next night by midday!! When we were finally up we took a tuk tuk around Bangkok, which took us to different temples and the big Buddha. The heat was pretty unbearable but we survived, but still no tan!! And we were cojoled into buying a bar of soap!!-my first purchase! at night we went for drinks on Kao sahn road which was an experience as everything just stays open throughout the night into the morning even the stalls out on the main street were still up selling Pad Thai!! We have all come to the conclusion that Bangkok is a bit of a dump and we are looking forward to going to Chiang Mai tomorrow on the jungle trek. We have just moved into the hotel we stay at before we get an overnight train tomorrow and the hotel is very nice but in a dodgy area of town so i'm glad we're going up north tomorrow, although i have a feeling the mosquitoes may be more prevalent. Mossie bite count so far is three! The next time i blog will probably in a weeks time when we get back from the jungle and before we go to Cambodia so wish me luck in the jungle!!!
