Pics of the last week or so...

oh yeah, and : Back in Bangkok!

sunny 34 °C

Written on April 22...

Well, Aliya and I have been back in Bangkok for a couple of days now, and are planning to stay a couple more to get our Cambodia visa. We could get it from a travel agency and/or at the border, but there are horror stories with both these options, so we decided to get it directly from the Embassy.
I quite enjoy Bangkok this second time around, and we are planning to visit quite a few places (as soon as I get off this computer, so I'm hurrying!)

Pics time:
Let's start with Songkran. These pics barely represent the pure chaos and great humour that reigned on that day, but it may give you an idea at least.

It's too bad that the extent of our "being painted and soaked" isn't clear on these pics....

This last one was taken on the bus, where, as mentioned in a previous entry, we were sitting right by the back door (which never closed). Throughout the 3.5h ride, the bus driver kept on stopping to let Songkran'ers on to douse us. We also got it from people aiming at the door as the bus was passing by...Ahhh fun times!

Songkran is officially THE BEST way to celebrate New Year!!!

However, I fully realize that it wouldn't exactly work in our weather (throwing water in Qc in January isn't eactly the idea of a lifetime, and you only need to step outside in Van to be drenched...not as much fun! hehehe)

We finally arrived at Khao Sok. here is a pic of our questhouse.
