Chilling in Bangkok's Chinatown with grilled tiger prawns, Thai seafood hot pot and an icy Singha beer. Life is good. Bangkok's Chinatown is a Thai smorgasbord of tastes, smells, sounds and happenings. Life is in the streets: Serendipity in technicolor. Please note that I am not in Bangkok at the moment but back home with Marilyn in Michigan.

Getting around is a bit easier nowadays in Bangkok with the help of the Skytrain and the Metro.
