The Far East -Bangkok, Thailand                            
Bangkok is a beautiful, modern, busy city. Thai food is cheap in comparison with European prices for Thai food, we stayed at the Rembrandt Hotel (very nice it was too) and found a very small restaurant under a corrugated iron roof 50 metres from the Hotel. We ate every night (and drank Thai Beer) for less than £10.00 for the two of us. The modern elevated city train service is easy to use, as we were only a couple of hundred metres from a station we used it a lot to get around. As the traffic was like rush hour in Manchester all the time from 08.00hrs until 21.00hrs we had very little option.

Drunk...... moi?
