WE arrived safely in the capital on Friday. Not without a disaster though, as my wallet decided to go AWOL on the plane. After much panicking a stewardess found it. Needless 2 say. Jay is now looking after the valuables :-)
Weather is great 35C! I'm starting to become as dark as my good friend - Rory...!
The Hallo/Reading boyz will be pleased to hear I hve managed to pickup some "moffat" items already!
Besides that, Have sampled the local cuisine - fried rice with chicken, fish curries and ..
You can get anything here, but food is the best thing, so cheap, dinner for 2 for less than a quid! I'm lovin' it!!!
Also sat in a tuk=tuk (without getting ripped off and taken on a jewelery tour); the skytrain (excellent, puts the tube to shame), and river boat - very good but packed.
Also, Been to various temples in the city - taken some good shots.
Met up with our tour group last night, they're a good bunch - mix of aussies/brits/danes/americans/canadians...went for few beers with them.
Unfortunately, one is a Man U fan....Can't have everything I guess (and he's from Manchester..!)
chiang mai is our next stop on a 13hr night train...should be interesting... will drop a line to you all in a few days.
