We met up with Nicks wife Marisa at Bangkok airport, the took a taxi (all electric) heavy traffic in the are around our hotel. We are in the Grand President and had our rooms upgraded to suites, on the 17th floor with excellent views all around the city. First stop was the pool area, where we had a beer and a quick swim its a sultry 33C. Decided on a local Thai restaurant just the other side of the sky train adjacent to Nani station. Marissa selected some excellent dishes; Pla Kapong Neung (sea bass in lemon and chilli sauce) and some Tom Kha Gai, lovely hot and sour soup! Really tired after the flight so an early night, but of course awoke really early.
