Back In Bangkok
I have a nice panoramic view from my room here in Bangkok - actually two views, since my small suite is on the corner of the building and there's a balcony off of the bedroom and the living room. This is a level of hotel I seldom rise to, but with tourism hurting the internet special rate made it affordable. As we've covered before, it pays to shop around. Should memory serve, my suite here is running me about $67USD per night, breakfast buffet, pool and large gym included. Not that I've stepped into the gym, but...
I'm FINALLY feeling healthy again after two weeks of enduring the bacterial infection and the medications to be rid of it, or at least fine enough to be whining that I don't have enough time here to do and see all that's still on my list. There will be many friends I will not have an opportunity to sit and chat with, and with life passing along as quickly as it does that's never a happy thought.
I spent most of yesterday lost in the crush of humanity that filtered through the arteries and capillaries of Jatujak Market. It was, as usual, an overwhelming experience - and I"m planning to go back today. I'm taking photos by the hundreds, so you've been warned.
Off to breakfast and then out again today.
