First impressions from Bangkok



5-P1150377A hall with food stalls, tables and benches at a street market in Sathorn. A lot of office workers come here for lunch. Really nice roasted chicken with sweet-sour sauce (glad I asked for the mild version), plus soup, for a total of 40 Baht (= 1 Euro).

No, not a joke, and not a deliberate reference to the song.

In the evening I left my hostel to just quickly grab something to eat and found myself in the middle of Bangkok’s nightlife.

In the end I postponed dinner to rest for a moment and have a mojito in gay street – most fun waiters ever!
