Bangkok Breakdown

Ok, I've gotten a bit behind in my blogging, so I'll give you a brief run down on the rest of our time spent in Bangkok (for the moment - we return for New Years but more on that later).

What The?

The Thai food has been for the most part quite intriguing - very tasty but a little strange. But out of all the places I've eaten so far, this place is by far the strangest. I mean, come on. What does Santa have to do with hamburgers? I could understand if they were flogging "deer-burgers" or "elf fries" or something gimmicky like that, but ffs.

Lotte and I have spent a four days in Bangkok so far and it's been a lot of fun. It's pretty crowded (6 million people live here) but there's lot to do. Some of the transport is quite antiquated - the fastest way to get to the city centre from our hotel is to catch a rickety old boat that travells up and down a canal. The benches are so small that I struggled to fit in my seat. The fare - 5 baht (about 15 cents) - is collected by a boy who balances himself precariously along the side of the boat to reach all the passengers.

The Beach

Today Lotte and I caught a bus to one of the Shangri-La Resorts in the North-West of Penang. It primarily caters to fat lazy white people who (being lazy) just want to lie around all day (thus making them more fat). It's pretty funny to see how many people will "tan" (ie burn) themselves only on one side.
