A few people have asked the burning question, “What’s it like in Bangkok?”

Tough one to answer. I am on the other side of the world, which makes things all together foreign and interesting.

Think China town but bigger. And not Chinese.

Think old 80’s LA, with smog and pollution.

Think the beach in August, then dial the humidity and heat up a few points.

Think any Kung-fo movie, in surround sound, without the voice-overs. (And also not Chinese)

Think farmers market with stalls of fruit and fish and pad thai and sushi and dead puppies.

Think every smell that has ever graced your nose mixed together in a cacophony of flavor.

Think 7-11, still on every street corner.

Think New York with cars, horns honking, tires squealing, but the expletives in a vastly different key.

Think me, in the middle of it all.

Jodi, take a boat tour at the docks by the Olympic hotel; about 800 baht, ride around the city in long boat, be sure to see the snake show, take pictures, go through several locks in the river. Have fun, babe!!! Uncle K
Steve... sigh. Think how far you have travelled away from the Steve and Aaron and drama filled days of yore. It is sweet to name a dead fish apparel after him though. I will tell him. It will touch his heart, and other places, I am sure... it is Steve after all!
