First visit for the new decade.
From Suvarnabhumi, we went straight to the post house and finished around midnight.
Post-midnight check-in, with a small surprise at the hotel. They put me in a junior suite instead of my usual room on the 13th floor (aka The Smokers' Ghetto.)
"I took the suite life..."
Lotsa space. Too bad I had no one to share it with.
"..and never knew I'd be..."
Then again, I'm used to empty spaces.
" ...bitter from the suite."
Anyway, the next morning, I discovered that apparently, it's still Christmas in Bangkok.
Now, while I love me some holiday cheer, I've always found it a little odd that a Buddhist country such as Thailand would celebrate Christmas.
I bet she's wondering, too.
Then again, perhaps it's nothing more than a festive commercial holiday.
Anyway, any reason to cheer must be good enough, as LG's smileys might say.
"Life's good, you whining fucks."
The circus was apparently in town, too.
"Freaks! Get your freaks right here, folks!"
Mascot gamely poses for this pap.
The Talented Mr. Fox.
And so do a couple of mimes making balloon animals.
No elephants, though, alas. For they were banned from the city about a couple of years back. Sad. I'll never forget ambling absently through Patpong before looking up just in time to avoid literally walking into a parked pachyderm on the sidewalk.
Holiday cheer wasn't for everyone, though.
Clean slates need work.
Mr. P seems to be above it all.
Still, maybe we shouldn't over-think things.
"Brain half yourself a Merry Little Christmas"
And with that...
