We land in Bangkok at about 11:00 PM, wait a long time for my bags to appear from the belly of the airport onto the luggage carousel, and set out to walk to our hotel. On our way out of the airport, we get stuck in the rotating exit doors. It turns out to be a longer, less direct walk than expected. We do, in fact, get stuck in the mud with our luggage carts which we took from the airport. It's kind of comical. We double back once, make our way through the lower half of a parking ramp, and emerge on the streets of Bangkok each pushing a luggage cart with muddy wheels and bags hanging over the sides.
I don't know what to expect when we get to the hotel, but it turns out to be pristine and schwanky. I immediately figure out how many nights we'll be able to enjoy this hotel - the answer is two. We'll stay here tonight and on our last night in Thailand before heading to the airport in the morning.
Tonight, we actually only get about 4 hours in the hotel as we're leaving at 5:00 in the morning. We sleep well to the sound of the British open on the TV.
