Ten and a half hours in the air, plus one in a taxi, led us to the Thai capital city. We’re staying at the Shanti Lodge, a true oasis.
After a sweaty afternoon nap, we began to explore the city; the colours are bright; the smells are pungent; the buildings, a mix of grimy and ornate. Stray cats and dogs roam the streets, alone, and in packs. In the markets you can buy anything from chicken feet, to batteries, to Buddhist amulets.
It’s been a long day. Sleep beckons.
