And the city don’t know that the city is getting

bankok for 2 nights
Very nice hotel – thanks idan
At this point in time, bankok and I did not connect well

It was too much for me, and no relaxation, and fake, fake fake
Tuk tuk sir? Lady boom boom? Pussy Ping pong?
Haaa much you pay? 650. Ok? 100? Ya clazy?
And you are different, and are small, and many do not talk english, even cab drivers, and negotiation is with out air conditioning and without a smile. The city don’t stop and its a mix, and its amazing, and fake fake fake.


And hard to digest, and street food cooked and the sweat is on and the dirt beneath and a mother with child, on her knees because she see’s you. Can you spare a dime? Is that 10. Baht or 100? Neon, florescent, leds, on-off behind the glass, in the stall, and westerners walking, with beer, and great bodies and electronics and internet cafe and beit habad and 7/11 are really popular here

And the air is dirty, did our tuk tuk. 50 baht, 4 sites, one hour and less than 2$ and the driver waits in each site. It is hot and sticky and the air is dirty.

The city has changed. From gaza to gaza elite. Skytrain and skyways. It is a huge city 10 km from one area to another. And we are popular. And people constantly touch us and want to sell us stuff we don’t need at prices we don’t want. Fake fake fake. And girls of the street think we are cute. And they are small. The butt is tight. Some of their faces are from another world. They touch us and smile at us and sell us beer and clap their hands and laugh with us. We are over-aged over wealthy western men

Some things here are cheap some are expensive. Most are fake fake fake.

I freed 5 birds in a Buddhist temple and a Buddhist monk was collecting money at 2 am as you walk out of a club.Corn? I love corn, not fake. An elephant in the middle of the street. Not fake. A 10 year old girl selling flowers at 3 am in front of a club, not fake..
We bought a camera. Iris needed one. We bought 3. Mbk. Hard to negotiate. Canon sd 1000. Like a cigarette box. Back to basics. Great format, great menu, great shots. All the stores have the same price. And bags and burberry and boss. Luis vitton, prada, lowes bags and jeans, calvin klein. Haa much ya pay? Fake fake fake
Agressive, what you want haa much you pay. Loud music, traffic not moving, taxis waiting, no willing to turn on meter. fake cigrattes, lots of beer too much alcohol.

This is what happens when capitalism meets no rules and very poor people. Too much, not simple, amazing energy, all senses on overload
Like Thai massage at first it hurts, too much and for too long – can you go softer on the muscles? – and then it reaches an equilibrium, and some of it is nice and when it is over you wish you had more
