Well, it's now less than 24 hours until we leave Thailand and start the mammoth journey home via the far east!
The last few days in Bangkok have been really good though and a definite eye opener!
On friday we went to the famed "MBK" shopping centre to stock up on Jeans (Sho) and numerous cd's and dvd's. The place was absoloutely massive! At the end of the day we went to see Shrek the Third in the cinema there. Is it out in the UK yet?? Anyway, it was pretty funny and We'd reccommend it.
Yesterday we went to the weekend market, the size of which I have never seen before. Imagine Hull city centre, under cover with 100,000 (actual figures) people and thousands of stalls in 35 degree heat. It was excellent but really tiring. We only lasted maybe four hours, maximum, before we had to retire to the air conditioning of our hotel.
Shonah decided that she'd like a suit made for job interviews when we return so we found a reallly nice little tailors shop near to our hotel which seemed really genuine, and a far cry from the dodgy ones you read so much about in the Lonely Planet. She's decided on it all and has had her 2nd fitting, with today being the collection day! I have to say, it looked brilliant! In addition, I had another two shirts made up (as did shonah), which I hadn't intended on doing, but the prices are unbelievable and the quality is top notch. I figured I might as well do it now before im even poorer at the end of my masters and need shirts for interviews etc.
Anyway, today I'm noty sure what were doing. One big task is trying to figure out how to pack all the stuff we've bought and accumulated. I think a new cheap bag might be needed!
Can't wait to see everyone. Even max!! haha.
See you all soon,
Rich and Sho
