Leaving Bangkok

off today to Chiang Mai. Three days in Bangkok have been fun and rewarding. It was for t he Australian Society of Travel Writers' agm. The day before the big event members of the society visited the Bangkok School for the Blind and presented a cheque for $1000 as a donation. We were entertained by the children with a few songs and were given a tour around this impressive institution. (They need volunteers to help the children with their English homework if you have some time to spare when visiting.)
I took the sky train to the weekend markets to have a look around. It was 35deg. and a little warm and cosy.
Saw an extravaganza last night in a huge theatre where elephants entered the stage and even walked past us in just behind the front stalls - it truly is Amazing Thailand.
