Thailand – It’s A Wrap

 

South Africa TV ad

As I cleaned up after the trek, I spotted a television ad for South Africa on CNN International or BBC World.  My anticipation continued to grow.  I must find out first hand whether Leonardo DiCaprio did the South African accent justice in Blood Diamond!

I spent a quiet night uploading photos at a cute cafe next door to my guest house before departing the following afternoon for Bangkok via train.  It turned out to be a longer trip by a few hours, and more expensive, than if I had taken the bus, however I wanted to try something different.  The 2AC sleeper train cars were narrower than in India, yet the staff made your bed and I took advantage of the dinner and breakfast service.  I also appreciated the purple curtains which offered a sense of privacy.  The scenery during the first few hours was green and hilly.

Back in Bangkok for the third time, I took a room at the same place I stayed before with Josi and Catharine, The Rambutri Village.  I ran lots of little errands like buying more mp3's, looked for scorpions at night (I found a bug cart, but they guy told me to come back in a week), overhauled my wardrobe with the finest threads Th Kho San Road has to offer, and enjoyed a few last meals (banana pancakes w/honey, spicy mossaman curry with chicken and rice, coconut shake, etc.).

I don't think so - Google'd it and found "Shrimp Basil" which sounds delicous!
