Back in Bangkok, only staying the one night and then catching me a night train to Chiang Mai tomorrow (19:55 Thailand time, 12:55 your time), takes about 10 hours but I get a bed so should be fine.
My friend Frida who I met on Ko Chang got the same boat/bus back with me to Bangkok and she's been here like five times so she knows lots of cool little places I missed. Im staying at a place a few streets down from Khaos San Road (the popular street - think Camden - where I stayed before) but still a nice place. Luckily because we've arrived on a Friday we get to experience the weekend market tomorrow. Apparently it's pretty amazing, if you can think of it, they'll sell it sort of place. I was last here on a Tuesday and Wednesday so missed it. I'll be taking orders for monkeys and snakes yeah?
It doesn't feel that i've been away from Bangkok for two weeks, there's such a difference here from the islands though. Luckily upon my return i've learnt quite a few Thai words so "Mia Kapp" (no thanks) comes in handy here. Everyone just tries to sell you suits! Yeah it's 35 degrees i'd LOVE a suit :-/
I miss the beach... X
