So, I have officially made in full frikkin circle back to my orgin. In fact it is seven weeks to the day since I arrived I think! So much has happened and I am a little different than when I frist arrived! I cant say the whole I've found myself, am a changed person stuff as thats a bit too cliched for my liking. I am however much more chilled out and less inclined to stress at the smallest things!
So I have been here since monday I think. I have just been pottering around really waiting for the arrival of Mr Wilson - which by the way is now in a whole 20 hours!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I stayed two nights in My House on soi Rambuttri. Which was cheap and ok. The room was larger than my previous one but not much better and I think it tops the list of hottest room that gives me the least sleep!!! I have now loosened the purse strings and moved to a hotel in the middle of Khao San road. You wouldn't belive you are staying in the centre of packpacker hedonism when your in the room. Its so nice, clean and quiet and I have air con! God Bless air con I have slept so much today thanks to my friend air con! The hotel has a pool on the roof which is very welcoming in Bangkok heat and the terrace gives you an awsome city view! Its nice to be well above the stifling heat of the streets sometimes!
So I have managed to navigate my way on the Choa Prah river express which was fun. Really cheap and quick way to travel as opposed to the smog and stress of the roads! I visited the hospital that the royals used as it has what sounded like an interesting museum. They had a whole section of the Tsunami which was a little upsetting. The medical part of the museum was a no holds barred feast on the eyes of many many things preserved in formaldahyde. Including various babies, brains, livers you name it. There were alot of very graphic medical injury photos and some preserved corpses in cabinets just to top it off! After that I had to lighten the mood a little so headed to CentralWorld which is a huge 7 floor shopping centre! It was ok for the fist two floors but I statred to get bored after that. There was a Dorothy Perkins and Next and Topman so was not really a new shopping experience.
Haven't really spent much time soaking up the Khao San atmosphere, I'll wait for Wilson to join me on that but I am less overwhelemed than last time I guess!
So now I am just killing time whilst waiting for him to arrive!!!!
