    How would you describe your life in Bangkok in a sentence or 2

    I will be in Bangkok for good in a few months and would like to know how some of you guys would describe your experiences there. I dont need a novel, just a sentence or 2 please.

    Shit. Thailand was great but, strangely it seems to have gone down hill. going to be a lot worse in 5.8 weeks.
    Never mind. I'm a long way away.

    A paradise for those looking for good food, cheap clothes and company for all price ranges, colours, creeds and persuasions.

    Not so good if you enjoy fresh air, peace and quiet and long straight roads with no traffic.

    I worked there for 5 months and while the coin was good I would quite happily have walked the 450kms back to khon kaen had there not been a bus to take me when my work contract finished.

    I have a love hate relationship with Bangkok. Lived there for 15 fun filled years, (best place in the world for fun) tired of it and moved away. Always enjoy a brief foray but I always look forward to leave the place and too regain my sensibility.

    It feels familiar and chaotic, fun and serious. Will tire of it one day though.

    It did me mate and after 2 days of being here again I would crawl out of the place on my hands and knees and if I had too.

    ^ definite lightweight, exactly 1 year on the 29th since I last got away from Bangers Got a wedding though this weekend to go to in Korat :cheers: (apparently about 2 and a half hours away, I thought there was only one right up north) Hope it's OK there; I've never been.

    A fvckin lightweight.......??????

    How I wish I could knock 18 years off my old jaded body and then we could go the rounds.

    I suppose I'm past it now, actually in Bangkok at the moment, had fish and chips and bread and butter pudding in the hotel room, rang the kids and now doing my homework on the computer. Can even here all the bells and whistles going on in Soi Nana and there is no way I am venturing out.

    I'll be around tomorrow night if you are up for a drink.......... or 20 ?
