The next morning we had breakfast at the hotel
Meet the queen of Norway
Than we did walk a bit in the park in Nakhon Sawan and had lunch at a small place.
Coconut shell as bird house – good idea!
In the evening we had Eli’s birthday dinner in the hotel.
Poor band – they did play the whole evening and we where the only guys in the place.
After dinner we got a bottle of 100 Piper and some ice – off to the room we went.
Next morning after breakfast Eli & Ivan walked me to the bus station and waved me off.
Had a 1st class bus to Chiang Mai and it was half empty – good for me as i had 2 seats. Not sure what is better – the night bus or the day bus. I think now the day bus as you see a bit more and only one day is fucked up. When you take the night bus and can not sleep than the night and the next day are fucked up.
Mr. èšç¿¼ç¿” and his friend Mr. Faruk did pick me up from the Suan Prung Gate in Chiang Mai and walked me to Jiang’s house. There where a lot of friend sitting in the living room and i went for dinner with a few of them.
Funny seating arrangement but it does work
On the way back to the house i got a few bottles of LEO and talked to the guys a bit. An no way – what a small world!
The guy was the night time manager and the girl the day time manager of the Crazy Monkey in Dhali. I was drinking in that place when i visited Monika and Alex a few years ago. And sure enough they where friends as well. How many times did that happen to me now – I still love it 🙂
My wonderful room – thank you a lot Jiang!!
Did arrive yesterday in Chiang Mai. Jiang has a house here now and i have a VIP room – very cool.
But lets go back to Bangkok. After Eli and Ivan left for Nakhon Sawan i had one day to do nothing and that is what i did.
The usual snack at the park. A fruit shake for sun set.
And than it was time for dinner. I walked down Soi Rambutrie and passed the Magic Place Restaurant – last year i did meet Jeli here while walking past the place. So i decided to have dinner here since this is a good place anyhow. The boss if a happy man that does some magic tricks for the guests. That is why it is called the Magic Place. I noticed a big group of people on the left but only when i did pay my food i saw Jeli!
What a coincidende – Jeli again and at the same place!
Last time he came from Myanmar with his group and was on the way to the South for some diving. This time he was on the way to Myanmar with his group. There is no day when you do not run into someone that you know here in Bangkok!
Next Morning: Breakfast at the little Vegetarian restaurant next to the klong
What a nice day! It did cool down in the night and there was some wind. Blue sky and a pleasant 21 in the morning.
Went home, did pack the bag and took a taxi to the “Chatuchak”-Station or you can call it “Mo-Chit-2”³ or “Northern Bus-Terminal”. Same Same!! I had to wait 2 hours for Scott there to meet him before i did leave for the north.
Finally Scott and Tailek did arrive
We had lunch together and talked a bit – than it was time to get onto the bus to Nakhon Savan to meet Eli & Ivan again.
They got me from the bus station and we went to the hotel which is opposit of the bus station. Very convenient!
Eli did invite me and gave me this nice room!
Ivan did pay for the bath romm – lucky me!!
After the Diner we went to the room for a few beers and talked a bit. Only a few minutes to midnight so Ivan did play some musik for Eli
Than a last sip – Ivan’s favourite: Underberg
Sunrise on the way to Chiang Mai
