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.

Bangkok

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.
