Right, hope this all works - having a potential issue in uploading photos so am unable to put photos on atm. they arent that interesting yet anyway - ive only been in bangkok for 24 hours!
anyway, after a STUPIDLY long flight we arrived in bangkok, nearly died from heat exhaustion and finally got a cab to our hostel. had a potential issue as jade was desperate for the loo so we got our cab driver to make a quick stop for us. jade and jaz went inside and i was left with the taxi driver....then the taxi driver started to drive. SLIGHTLY scared for my life but it turned out he was just looking for womewhere to park. so no issue - other than the fact that jade and jaz couldnt find us so thought he had kjidnapped me and all our stuff. got to our hostel. there are 3 of us in a 2 person room. u actually cant move. to get around u have to walk over the beds. arg. went out for food last night and as per usual it didnt agree with me - yes i had a couple of beers but they werent the problem (mirren can tell you that i only get drunk if i have had some crisps to go with my alcohol!) met a really nice finnish guy at the bar who was telling us everywhere to go. was real nice. anyway, my diet started of amazingly today! was only in thailand for 12 hours before my first bout of illness struck me. was not fun. anyway, stayed in bed until about midday then had a shower - no point - u just are icky ALL the time in thailand!arg. then we went off to have another look around. some woman told us she would give us a tour of bangkok in her tuk tuk for 5 baht each (about 6p!) so she took us to a few place, we nearly died a few times - seriously there is no driving test here is sware - people just drive at about 70 miles an hour then slam on breaks when cars pull out infront of them - they do that a lot - stop lights are pointl;ess) anyway, she stranded us at some travel agency an d as we hadnt paid we got a free ride - yey! had some real sweet creope thing - was 7 baht for this thing! real nice. anyway, off for my first meal of the day today - bring on the weightloss. gotta go as the machine is beeping at me!
