Leaving Bangkok....

Decided to get a change of scenery so off by taxi this morning to a little quiet beach place called Cha Am. its about 4 hours taxi ride from Bangkok. Was going to get the train but got a quote of £30 so thought theres no point having the hassle of getting to Bangkok train station then carting my stuff on a train, when I can get an air-conditioned taxi instead for £30.

Yesterday sunbathed all afternoon, as wanted to get what is left of it as I think it's going to be a little wet this week....then last night went down Soi 8 Sukhumvit for something to eat, very busy and very nice food. I was sat on my table and the floor area was raised up (I now know why), the restaurant next door I realised had the same raised up floor, didn't occur to me why, until I realised this was the local 'rat run'...they were huge...entertaining if nothing else!!

However, the most exciting thing that happened on Saturday, I found my bug stall. So bought a few lovely little creatures to eat. Got some grasshoppers and some small beetle type bugs.....gorgeous!!

Amazing selection
