Well I have arrived safe and sound, Bangkok is mental, its a bit like they have started off with a shanty town and got a child to decide where to plonk random temples and fancy offices!
The flight was fine I was very brave, although after taking off from Bahrain obviously very tierd decided to have 40 winks! The lights were all turned down and I was just drifting of when there was a really strong smell of smoke-obviousy I little concerned I opened my eyes and saw a billow of smoke above me- "f*** me" I shouted (sorry dad) wakng up all my fellow passengers-obviously at this pont I was very concerned, I stood up only to see the lovely Arab fellow in front of me smoking the fattest cigar!!!! Scandalous! (although very relieved I must say) think the poor guy had to go back to Bahrain after that, the air hostesses werer a little annoyed to say the least.
The hostel is basic but fine, I have aircon and sky tv-which accoring to others I have spoken to this is like luxury compared to their accomodation. Wandered around Koh San Road but I was a little nervous of venturing to far for the fear of getting lost so found a bar to settle down in for some pad thai noodles and a beer before the heavens decided to open, I tell you what-never seen rain like it! its still going now!
Met a jolly nice chap from Sanfransisco called Colin (nice trustworthy name) had a couple more beers with him and now heading back for a shower before heading out to experience some of the nightlife that Bangkok has to offer-I envisage pingpong balls flying at every angle! how exciting!
Its so humid here that everything just sticks to you! Meeting up with the tour group tomorrow morning which will be good so I will get to see the sights around here.
Right Im offski to have a wash as I stink!
Love you lots guys-wish you were here! ;-)
