Bangkok – Thailand

posted on September 18, 2006 in Thailand,Travel

Christ on a bike (or should that be Buddha on a moped?) they drive like absolute lunatics in Bangkok. The place is also FULL of middle aged, overweight, balding men with tiny, beautiful, waif like Thai women. Well, at least I know where I’m going for my mid life crisis.

Busy Bangkok

We decided (with slight apprehension) to go to the notorious Pat Pong market. If Bangkok is generally seedy, then Pat Pong is seedy on steroids. It’s also the place to go to see ‘Ping Pong’ shows – so we did. Let me tell you, I had no idea the vagina was so versatile. For years we have mistakenly equated it simply with sex, but we are quite wrong to do so. Smoking, projectile launching, writing and general storage of items are all within the remit. I politely declined the offer to eat the banana when a young girl launched it at my head. Another girl got Lewis to write his name down and passed it to another girl on stage. The girl then ‘inserted’ a pen, squatted down over some paper and began to carefully write out a message. After a minute she stood up and proudly held up the sheet of paper – “Hello Lemis”. I wondered if she had any tip-ex up there to correct the mistake.

We also went to see some Buddhism related stuff. This is a gold building in the Grand Palace.

I wish to be Buddhist now.
