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
And into the canals
Same as before, Ballardian
Big-ass lizard thing, maybe 4 feet long
Granny out for a paddle
Feeding the catfish
Into a lock where we waited for 20 minutes
Our suddenly pensive driver. A few minutes earlier he was being manic
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.
The classic Honda Grom
On that theme, motards and scooters at night. Fantastic. When I’m back I’ll do a Bangkok night ride with the big dogs
Madness at Wat Phra Kaew, home of the Emerald Buddha
Some mural details
All kinds of beautiful people
Market shopping in the rain
Inspecting small Buddhas
A Buddha store
My friend’s feet. I’ll miss her crazy ways. We had some great adventures in Laos and Thailand. Safe travels M
And off, back to Vancouver
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
