so yesterday i joined the GAP tour and met the people ill be spending the next 8 days with, they all seem very nice. most of them are american and much older than me. im the young un of the group.but its been good so far, last night i stayed in the royal hotel, not far fron the democracy monnument and khao san rd.
i took a wonder up there and found it to be a very fun and bustling atmosphere, there were quite a few people dancing in the street and lots of bargain s to be had.
i had quite a stressfull night and then had to wake up at 6.30 in the morn, wasnt fun. we then headed out to see some monuments around the area before going on a cannal boat ride down the river chao phryana river, where we were able to see many temples and gorgeous buildings,before feeding giant catfish, they were massive!!and so many of them. after that we went through a massive market where we saw many people having to de stalk some peppers for 30 baht a bag, which isnt a lot.
we then headed off to the palace, what a grand place that was. we saw the reclining bhudda and the many buildings surrounding it. i rather enjoyed that but i think the fish were rather glad
a 6 hour bus journey followed and now im at a hotel, just relaxing till tomorrows bike ride
