Sawadee, Sawati khap & Yo!



On the 27th of April we arrived in Bangkok, arriving from Delhi. You will see photos from our last few days in India here and the rest are from Thailand and Laos. Bangkok, though famous for its pollution, decadence and chaos seemed like some rich, clean Swiss town after Delhi: a lovely relief from the horrors of Indian grime.

Despite that, we were attacked by swarms of cockroaches, have been ripped off to-the-brimm by the locals and have seen the dark side of the 'bangkok boys' and post-war culture of southeast Asia. Here are some photos, please enjoy!

Colorful dresses and jolly smiles hide the depressing reality of arranged weddings and caste-determined culture.

Bar touts out on the streets of this crazy, over the top touristy booze-up street. Quite a larf though. Lots of friend cockroaches on sale here.
