Asia | South East Asia | Thailand | Bangkok – Stomach sick
I was a bit stomach sick on the 7th of August, so I decided to stay at the hostel and explore a bit of the neighborhood. On the 8th of August I met Nancy, a girl from Canada. She is currently bicycling around the national park somewhere in South Thailand as Im writing this. It was really difficult for her to get from the hostel to the train station so I decided to help her. Taxis dont carry bikes and neither do busses, so Nancy went to the train station by bike, and I took her stuff and followed her with the bus. I dont think Thais see a lot of foreigners on bicycles in Bangkok, everyone in the bus and even on the street was looking at her (some of them where laughing, others just nodding their heads).
By the way, Nancy arrived at the train station before I got there, so bicycling is a non-polluting fast way to get around in Bangkok, if you can bear the heat. Unfortunately I couldnt join her, I love hiking and bicycling around in the nature.
