I arrived late Sunday night, sweaty and smelly and a bit woozy from the bus, and was greeted with open arms and fresh sliced cold mango. Mmmm, that's what I'm talkin' about. I'm staying with Romana, whom I met in Yangshuo, and her husband Richard, whom promptly plied me with Christmas sweets and tea aplenty.
Monday was spent doing visa runs for Cambodia and Laos, both of which were quick and painless, aside from being a haul to the far reaches of the city. In the late afternoon Romana took me to Siam, a massive shopping area smack in the middle of the city, with countless department stores up and down Sukhumvit Road. I may have set the world record for number of department stores entered in one hour. Good grief. Apparently Bangkok is THE shopping mecca in Asia, and let me tell you, I believe it.
It's good to be back in Bangkok. And, true to form, I have yet to have one meal that isn't finger-lickin' good. Yum-o.
