No sandals in the Banyan Tree

Went to meet Carolines neighbours from Dublin tonight. one of the family was celebrating a significant birthday so we thought we'd join the celebrations by meeting them for a drink. Due to a monsoon downpour the top bar on the 59th floor of the Banyan Tree was closed but we did get to go to the Latitude Bar on the 52nd floor. They were none too impressed with my sandals so they gave me a pair of slip on shoes to wear in the bar. There's no accounting for taste in these parts.

The kids have been exceptional and have shown great adaptability over the last few days. I, on the other hand, have erred on the side of grumpiness. I left the family for just under an hour today so that I could pick up tickets for our sleeper train to Chiang Mai. It was sweltering hot in Hua Lamphong train station. If you can imagine a 35 degree Heuston Station where there are no seats and everyone sits on the ground then you're quite close to what I experienced this afternoon. We'll hang around Bangkok for another day and then we'll start heading north. We're hoping it might be a little cooler but who knows. I'm hoping the cool might chill me out a little.

Here's a picture of the nuggets on the 52nd floor of the Banyan Tree in Bangkok. Great night all round. Big up to the McAleers for a great evening. Happy birthday Orla.
