I feel like my visit to Bangkok was a real eye opener for me, today’s blog is not for me to try and change the world or anything daft I just feel like id like to be honest and talk about what we have seen.
As we were driving out of Bangkok yesterday I couldn’t help think to myself that Bangkok has had its boom, a long time ago. The city is full of buildings that look from the outside derelict but in actual fact are full of families. Before we left Bangkok yesterday we took a 5 minute walk out of the busy hub of Koh San Road into what I could only describe as a shanty town. It seemed that bits of corrugated iron nailed together was home for the locals. Little narrow alleys and people sat outside there homes with the front panel opened up as an invitation to their very own jumble sail. Probably hoping for that very rare family heirloom to be found like the trotters! It was really sad to see people living like this just trying to survive another day.
As I’m writing this it sounds like a B52 bomber is doing a fly by above my head but miss Alex has spotted a bee flying around us. The sting would be like a javelin thrown by Steve Backley. For this reason I’m off now to take cover and then grab some breakfast.
