The Ramblings Of A Pessimistic Arsenal Fan

Goodnight Bangkok

Why am I still awake? I have had no more than an hours sleep since yesterday morning, 34 hours ago and yet I sit here typing this rubbish into my iPod, hoping that someone will care. OK, so the two of us may have had a few beers in Bangkok this evening but really, it’s time to stop now, surely.

My first impression of the Thai capital is that a reduction in the population of around 90% wouldn’t go amiss. There are far too many people here. Our bus took more than two and a half hours to travel the 20km from the airport to our hotel, which was nice.

We are staying just on the outskirts of town and took the Sky Train a couple of stops to find somewhere to eat. Now we are tired and a little drunk so it’s time to sleep. As you may have guessed, our hotel has free wi-fi but, having forgotten to bring the correct cable with me to charge my iPod, this may be my last post for a while. We shall see what the shops have to offer tomorrow morning before we hit the tourist trail.

  1. Take a trip down Khao San Road, thats where I stopped back in 1999. I’m sure its still a dive even now. Hope you like your spicy food!

    • I think that’s where we have to go to catch the bus across the border to Cambodia. It’s notorious apparently. Cannot wait.

  2. So, you did finally manage to make it to the airport? Via Feltham I assume. I loved that little Simon touch when Annika told me. Have fun! x

  3. No iPod cable? I hope you remembered your memory card reader 😛
