Pairs Well With… “One Night in Bangkok” by Murray Head AND….my 100th post!!!!!
Bangkok. The city of smiles, pad thai, fried scorpions (that apparently taste better than french fries, or so I hear)…and lady boys. Bangkok is fantastic and offers a bit of relief from some of the hardships we experienced in Cambodia. Bangkok, I love you. As this is my last stop in Asia, I think we’re all planning going out with…a bang.
In only twelve hours, I was able to get a good enough read on the city to determine that it has the kind of energy I would look for if I were moving to a bigger one. I never quite know what I’m walking into month to month, partly because I like to be surprised and want to paint my own perception of the city and partly because I’m still living in the “here and now” and really can’t be bothered to think that far ahead quite yet.
Thailand is one of those places that I have excitedly anticipated visiting for a long time, though for anyone who has seen Brokedown Palace, you’re probably still looking over your shoulder at the airport. For the record, there have been other notable movies filmed in Thailand, from Hangover 2 to The Beach, painting a picture of both a bustling city and chill island vibes, both of which I plan to explore.
