Last Three Days in Bangkok
15.02.2012 - 01.03.2012 34 °C
Over the last 3 days in Bangkok we have been taking in the surrounds of the city. There are so many differences and things to compare. This is a big modern city but it is surrounded by old buildings, parks, market places, Buddhist temples for worshiping and people living in shacks along the canal. Bangkok is full of diversity.
The people work hard but they seem to enjoy life especially in the evening and they always have a smile for us. There are all sorts of smells and sometimes things look very dirty and you can’t drink the local water but somehow we still find Bangkok fun and exciting. We are sad to leave it and wish we could stay longer.
Ethan says he wishes he was a local and not a tourist so he would fit in better. We have enjoyed eating food from the street as it is so tasty. Thai people make the best fried chicken and we will miss the Tom Yum Gai and our favourite desert Mango and Sticky Rice. We will make it for our family when we get home because we know how. Thanks to Poo’s Cooking Class.
We now know that the Thai people pray to Buddha and make offerings of food and money for good health, good fortune and for their families because they have a hard life. We also know we are lucky to live in Australia where we can drink the water, live in a nice house and have an easy life. We wish the Thai people well and hope to come back again as they are such cool people. We recommend this city to everyone young and old. Tomorrow we fly to Bali.
