Day one in Bangkok - staying at Siam@Siam Hotel with Louise. Good sleep after flight from Sydney departing yesterday in Biz Class. 1.5 hour car ride to hotel - Friday peak hour!! Hotel very arty and both have a good nights sleep. Breakfast at hotel and then a wander to get drinking water for louise and go by Muangphol hotel where we stayed in 1990. A walk around MBK buying pashminas, t-shirts and Mercedes Benz dummy's for me! Back to hotel for a swim and satay chicken for lunch by the pool.
