Today was my first shopping day in Bangkok, among other things I ordered some new suits for the New Year. The city is quite crowded due to the political happenings at the moment. Even so I am incredibly happy to be here again and staying at one of my favorite hotels, Mandarin Oriental. Tomorrow will be a day of relaxing at spa and then off to a Thai feast! Tonight I went to a great restaurant which specialized in Thai/Indian fusion, I had the curried goat brains… it was quite a dish.
