Travel Notes from Khao San Road, Bangkok, Thailand

It has been a homecoming for me. I'm right here in Khao San killing time before i am off to the airport for my flight to New Delhi tonight.

Last night, i had the most quiet, yet most rewarding night out with a big 'ol bottle of Chang of course. I've seen more beautiful Lady Boys than actual girls. And yes, it was a level-up from last time that i was here. I still love Bangkok, and i have seen a couple of stuff i want to buy but i need to pack light for India. Anyway, i have a free day when i return so that should be my agenda.

Also, from the last time i was here, i also become more Thai looking. Now, everyone seems to think i'm from here. I try to disassociate myself from the normal tourist-holding a Lonely Planet book. An old man hugged me like his son in one of the Pad Thai places. I knew i was home.

Since last night, i was going to familiar places and it's such a delight to know my favorite places are still here. I've been spending a little too much but it's okay. By the way, i am staying at the very same guesthouse where i was the last time i was here. Same old, same old... very warm bath and confusing aircondition system. It's only 300 baht, i got what i paid for.

So there... I need to contact my hotel in New Delhi but if i can't because it's 45 baht/min to call international. I am taking my chances and will see later on if i get the taste of Indian surprise.

Surprise me, India. So looking forward to it.

P.S. Can i just say how this keyboard sucks. I am typing really really hard now. Errr. ha ha

@Markyramone more alcohol and a lot of chilling. I've become the laziest traveler ever. All i want to do is sit and watch people. I create stories in my head. hehe

@Ian India is enlightening and life-changing. I will never get tired of visiting the country. The people are beautiful inside and out. Namaste!
