So we finally arrived in Bangkok, weird.
Naah, it's actually vey cool and cheap, except for the beers, but I guess you have to make money somehow. I haven't actually managed to upload any photos, will do that on Sunday when we're in Ho Chi Minh City (Loesil - ek sal vir jou spesiaal 'n paar x-toff classics oplaai).
It's hot here, real hot here. This place makes the Kalahari or Karoo look like amateurs in the "Bake your balls" game. Everyday is in the high 30s and humidity trickles teasingly somewhere between 90% and 100%. Luckily, nearly every second place is air-conditioned (even the main bus service is specially named the AC Bus), the beers are always cold, and the munchies are killer - especially the fresh fruit which the vendors sell along the road in these big glass boxes packed with ice.
We're off to see the Emerald Buddha (...the wonderful Buddha of Oz) and the Floating Marketplace today or tomorrow - unfortunately you can't take photoes of the Buddha because he's quite the man around here or something and is supposedly not fond of mere mortals capturing his image on film.
We had a crazy Tuk-Tuk rampage across town yesterday, Christoff just closed his eyes and prayed - something he did often on the way to Banglamphu from the airport. These guys don't really stop for anything - ever -they just sorta swerve around, up the sidewalk and over.
Anyways, will post the photos over the weekend.
