What a hectic time we've had here. In and out in just over three days Crow and Pops don't know whats hit them!!!!!

God Bangkok is busy and humid as hell...............it hasn't stopped the shopping though. POOP POOP
We flew in on the 6th and went straight to the Ko San Palace, threw our bags into the room and got straight into the pool, a couple of hours in there, a quick fry , a fantastic noodle soup ( oh how I've missed you!! and what a good one, championship winning material, good veggies, tender meat, flavoursome broth, good quality chopsticks, wooden ones none of that plastic rubbish where you can't pick anything up, artistic interpretation high, effort good, Russian judge says 8.5 crowd hold their breath and the english judge awards a.

oh how i've missed you !!!
.................................................... 9 yes thats right 9, I think that's straight into number 2 on the soupometer !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ) and then we hit the stalls!!!! And did we hit them.... they're probably still reeling, this is what Ria has been waiting for!!!! Shopping, sangsom and chang all the ingrediants for a messed up evening, chuck in some omellete behaviour and it's the perfect night, so back to the Palace to unload our purchases and download the rest !!!HA HA that's for you Pops!!!

Next day it's a bit hazy, in our heads that is , the weather is great, hot and sunny and today we;re off to the airport to collect the olds!!!!!!  Sweetpea is finding it hard to contain the excitement at seeing the crow and Pops ( Crow = her mum Karen, Pops = Karen's bloke Chris, also known as Coco ( see pops ), Alco (same reason ) and Oddjob ( not going into this one!!!! ) , so the morning is spent visiting various toilets around Khao san and killing time before their plane arrives.

and you
We get to the airport with plenty of time to spare to find the plane has been delayed for an hour so we hang around and it's finally a couple of hours later their arrival is announced so we head to the meet and greet area to jump out and surprise them. Ten minutes goes past, twenty, thirty, fourty, an hour......where are they?????? then just as we're giving up we hear RRRRRRRRRRRRRRIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA and they're in front of us, they'd come through another door ...Bugger!!!!! So back to the palace, throw down their gear and it's out on the street, cocktails, pad thai ( two lots for the big man!!! ), more shopping, lots more chang, pancake rolls and some gutter sitting and again it's time for bed!!!

The haze is there again this morning but no time to waste we're leaving tonight for Krabi, no trains as they're all fully booked so it's the peasant wagon for us!!!!! First thing, coffee time then a stroll down to the river, with a few more coffee stops for the crow, a river boat ride to the grand palace then on to Wat Po and the reclining buddah ( he really is lazy, this is our second visit and he's been on his back both times ).

crow, pops and bunny
It's as amazing as the first time and Pops and the crow love it!! Next it's lunch in the food stalls on Rambuttri and some shopping time before we have to start sorting ourselves out for the long haul on the wagon. Supplies are rounded up, pizza, kebabs, fruit salad, chicken on a stick, sarnies, peanuts, water, chang and a half bottle of Sangers and we're off to the beach, the crow and pops are a little stunned at the speed of our Bangers tour but it's been fantaaaaaaaarrrrrrrstic.
