    My First Bangkok Post

    No, not the newspaper.

    Not a particularly inspring thread either.

    Just my first from my new apartment in Bangkok. Moved in today. Lopburi and secondary school teaching now just a memory...well, for the time being anyway.

    Kind of nice sitting on a balcony sipping a beer and taking in the night skyline of Bangkok...well, compared to looking at the townhouse across the soi in Lopburi at least!

    New job starts tomorrow so I suppose I better limit it to just the couple...

    Welcome to up-town, torbers!

    Bangkok is a much nicer place to live than it would have been 5 years ago, IMO. Lot's of new cafe's, restaurants, cinemas, etc, ..and the BTS and metro system make life in the city much more pleasant..

    Why is that zippy?

    I find it's much faster it do it here. And you exactly the same process.

    Upload image to folder, open image, copy location, post image location.

    Likewise - Bangkok is (as most places) what you make of it. I have a feeling you'll be OK!

    I cannot stay in Bangkok more than about 5 hours, anymore.

    The city has a lot to offer but it's the getting around to get things done, and the air.

    Still better than most US cities, though.
