    Not so hiso trip oop Norf

    Around zero when I set off from the Fatherland, snow sludge in the streets.



    My presently dire circumstances forced me to travel without the comfort and services I used to be accustomed to, so I booked economy sardines-in-a-box class. The less said about the journey, the better, but I survived with copious amounts of muscle-relaxants & painkillers.

    You were the polite couple dining at that well-known cheap Isaan place in Soi Rangnam, Vic Monument last night? They similarly destroyed the fish in record timing.

    Strolls, what brings back to the Kingdom?

    I don't know your history here.

    Family? Holiday? Bit of both?

    Lacking funds, I had to stay in my tiny Condo in Bang Kapi.



    Not a bad area, lots of eye-candy and great shopping opportunities. Got some 2nd hand trousers for 100 bt:

    Both, also needed some new shoes & re-stock other stuff, too.
    Found a pair of trainers here:


    Got another 2 pairs in the 2nd hand - or should that be foot - shop. Told the thick fok two times I was already wearing one pair and put my old shoes in the corner, he could have 'em & try to sell them on, so'll be paying for two. To no avail, charged me only 100 for one pair - som nam nah.

    What I like about Bangkok is that there's cheap transport everywhere:


    Affordable food:




    ...and lots of business opportunities for the not work-shy with limited funds to invest, should use this as a model to relieve unemployment in Northern Europe:

    You can buy a second hand fridge freezer for 3k under the canal bridge round from the Mall.

    Other 2nd hand bits worth a look at

    Unbelievable amount of uni girl eye candy to lecherously leer at round there. Try the night market outside the SAT along Ramkhamheng.
