Planet-X and Bangkok
So here we are, Planet-X Ti and I are in Asia. I am at present afflicted by a debilitating dose of that most dastardly of maladies, jet-lag.
The journey here went well with my customary flight plan followed to a tee; settle down with two seats to myself and partake in a steady drip of Chile’s finest red. I lack the skills necessary to slumber in flight and so I inhabit a world where time no longer exists, Replaced in time’s stead is the red green and blue LED flicker of a tinny flat screen gracing the back to the seat in front of me, from which, once one’s ears are plugged into the infernal machine, emits a continuos cry of oaths from excitable Americans all accusing one another of unnatural incestuous acts with close female family members. I have spent very little time in The United States, though from the few weeks I have spent there I found the people to be decent polite friendly folks, which leads me to wonder why it is that Hollywood seems so passionate about presenting its populace in such a dire manner. But I digress.
The outcome of my prolonged lack of slumber was a marathon 14 hour sleep on my first night in Bangkok followed by 2 subsequent nights of dire fitful napping between prolonged spells of restlessness during which a section of my concise that I am working hard to take control of bullies me. The consequence of which is that it was only this afternoon twixt naps that I eventually assembled the Planet-X bike and nipped out into neighbourhood to take a few pics. Alas ’tis the fringe of the rain season and no sooner had I ventured out than the time was upon me to seek refuge from a tropical deluge.
Where to go on Planet-X?
