Day 3 Finally in Thailand
So I landed at the impressive new Bangkok Airport...It is huge and I mean huge. It was nearly a half mile from where the plane landed to customs and immigration. It looks a lot like the Denver airport but designed like the Sydney Opera house. So they let me in for 30 days but not anymore......Great and then I did a quick transit..decided not to do the ONE NIGHT IN BANGKOK thing and headed right to Chiang Mai..so back on a plane for another hour...Big downgrade, economy class .
I collected my baggage yea it all made it...Good going British Airways and after trying to explain where I wanted to go with my lousy Thai and his dreadful English, I got to my Apartment.
So of course you would want to see the place..After all it is called a Mansion is but the first thing I found out is the internet is not working today...They promise to have it fixed tomorrow so pictures will be forthcoming
All settled in and currently at a internet cafe...10 baht for an hour that is twenty five us cents. Not bad...The place is full of teenagers playing games on the computer...
Off now for a plate of Pad Thai and then bed...
