Chapter 3 : Blood sweat and beers!!!!
whilst jonno has gone to ring the mrs (he in big trouble) i have decided to update you on our current situation. I know these are coming through everyday at the mo, but this will soon stop when we go up north.
Last night was wicked, we went to the thai boxin match in downtown bangkok and it so turned out that tues is the main fight night there so it was packed! We managed to get ringside tickets so were well close to all the action and the gore. It was cool people brought yopu drinks and we got our photo with the fighters afterward,which will hope fully appear on the blog shortly! All that for 20 quid which we thought was quite good, we went for a nice romantic meal afterward. which was nice.
Today was very productive, with going to the grand palace but gettin turned away outside, so the dude on the door arranged for us to take a tuk tuk around all the major sites golden buddah, waterfront etc and then to TAT the tourist office. all for 40 baht, which is less than a pound. we spent the day with this driver called thang or somethin and he was pretty cool, although a chelsea fan. ( by the way dad had a very interesting talk with a random thai guy who wanted to talk about leeds. Bi-li-brem-ber,very amusing). anyway we booked a trip to the river kwai tommorrow and then onto chag mai where we have a trek booked, elephant riding, the works! all for little money which is always nice. So thats tommorrow and next week booked up.
Greg, jonno says he has burnt your books, so there.
take care guys
