Bangkok used to be sexy. Old world slowly meeting modernity. Tuktuks were a real mode of transport, not a tourist rip off, tanned travelers hung out in cafes reading battered books, and walking by foot was a joy.
Now it’s a polluted gridlocked steaming hellhole, with vast shiny shopping malls, trash filled rivers and a hustling sex trade. Every perversion is provided for. Or so I’m told.
There are still pockets of wonder, but with more information here in 1 day than experienced in 1 month in Bali, it’s so tiring and noisy, the obvious choice is to get out ASAP. After another undisputed best-salad-in-Asia at Ethos..
So I’m traveling without a computer (other than my iPhone). It’s challenging. Does it count if I’m typing this blog with 1 finger from my phone? Using super fast Internet at 1/3 of the cost of Bali..
