Bangkok again

A very brief catch-up post.

I bought my own ticket out for the day after Lucinda flies, scheduled for a week after my friend arrives.

So first we do the awesome easy thing and get a longtail to tour the canals for an afternoon. Up the river

Did some shopping. My friend needed a new cell phone which she got at the collosal MBK for about $20. A perfect Apple iPhone clone.

On that theme, motards and scooters at night. Fantastic. When I’m back I’ll do a Bangkok night ride with the big dogs

Picking up Lucinda the following day at YVR, after a quick visit to ICBC for a new decal. Fantastic packing job by Transpologistics. We picked Speedy Air Cargo to receive, couldn’t have been slicker. So a strong recommendation for them too. Customs at the airport didn’t even want to see the bike, just signed us through in under a minute

Then, home sweet home
