Quietly away we go
January 2-3, 2010 – Day 373-374 – Bangkok, Thailand
Well, the time came for us to go back to Bangkok and sad as we were to leave beautiful Samet, we made the drive back. We made another visit to the Chatuchak Weekend Market to pick up any last minute souvenirs before we send Lin’s backpack home with Latham stuffed full of goodies. (Note: in place of Lin’s 35L backpack listed on the packing list, Lin will be downsizing to a 24L pack. Seems small but we have learned to travel with very little).
As we wondered through the market we stumbled upon a pet market hidden way in the back. It was filled with (illigal) exotic animals. Everything from owls and eagels to alligators and squirrels.
Besides that, it was a rather uneventual couple of days getting back into Khao San life. Seems like a bit different crowd since the new year, older and quieter. Strange place all the same.
