Thailand, Take Two

Dear friends…

I’m back in Bulgaria, fairly healthy but feeling bored as a result of the shock in transitioning from Bangkok’s sensory overload to Bulgarian village life. Still, even with all my free time, I haven’t found much inspiration to blog and so I’m afraid this month’s update is going to just be a slew of the remaining pictures I took while in Thailand. I won’t bother with captions for most of the pictures, but if a certain something catches your eye, I’ll gladly explain what it is you’re looking at. For now, here is yours truly (and yes, I know I need a haircut.):

my trusty steed:

and the Bangkok adventure:

Above: Ridable elephants. I didn’t ride one because I wasn’t sure if they were being treated humanely. My elephant riding will have to wait for another day. Below: Bangkok Arts and Culture Center. I wish I could spend a week in the atrium just reading books, sipping on coffee, and acting smart.

Above: McDonald’s “Samurai Pork Burger”. I ordered it because I thought that the name destined the food for great things; I was mistaken. Below: Spicy green papaya salad. I think it may have been one of my favorite foods during my stay.

Above and below: Chatuchak Market. The massive outdoor market runs mostly on weekends and covers over 35 acres. There were shops of all kinds and countless, sweaty people packed into the narrow walkways to browse the endless stretch of wares.

Above: Part of a floating market in Thonburi. Below: Thai stilt houses along the Thonburi waterways.

Above: Wat Arun’s main prang, climbable by tourists. The steps were very steep, though, and a lot of people had trouble when trying to descend. Below: A statue taken on the temple grounds near Wat Arun’s prangs.

    I like the “Prang” ziggurat!

    Almost expect there to be thunder and lightning zapping the top, summoning a giant demon and everything….

    I like the idea of using one’s time efficiently by getting a haircut while you wait for your train to come!
