Gone To Bangkok!

The four of us farangs got to go to Bangkok today and it was sooo wonderful browsing through a bookstore (!) loaded (!) with English (!) books:o). :Sigh: I think I was pretty close to complete contentment, except for the fact my stomach was grumbling. But I did pick up two books to read. After Miss Krinny and I were done there, we went to a mall and ate fish and chips. This was our view out the window...

Thankfully we made it to the mall before it started to rain:o)

I am just amazed at how *big* Bangkok really is! And I do believe that Bangkok takes the honor for having the most congested roads:o).

Now this next picture would probably shock many of you! I am not, by any stretch of the imagination, a coffee drinker ~ at all. I tried it when I was younger and just wasn't impressed with it! It really is a shame too, because most of my friends are die-hard coffee fans... but alas, I haven't "acquired" a taste for coffee. Well Miss Krinny and I were not about to stand for 4 hours while we waited for the guys to get what they came to town for, so we found a Starbucks and I actually tried a cappuccino ~ shocking, I know!

It actually wasn't too bad... I definitely had to put some sugar in to cover that very "coffee" taste.

Perhaps there is a .01% chance that I might eventually come to like coffee... but don't hold your breath on that one;o).

All in all, it was a very pleasant day...:o).

Anne, I haven't acquired a taste for coffee either. I don't like anything about it. The smell, the taste, and definitely the scent of it on someone's breath! Very offensive. EWW! lol BUT! I know there are many people who love it and can't do without it. Good thing there are Starbucks all around the world for them, huh?

Nice views by the way!

Woohoo! Woohoo!!!! I am so VERY proud of you. :o) I know exactly where you went to...isn't that bookstore lovely? It was like a breath of fresh air right in the middle of my trip. Well, that is...until I saw the price of most of the books.
