Bangkoking It.

Welcome to Bangkok! Dirty, loud, crowded Bangkok. Kitty and Santa stayed in a lovely hostel with an open air rooftop cafe overlooking the muddy Chao Phraya River. It was beautiful in the most polluted way possible. They were just passing through Bangkok for 2 nights on their way to Chiang Mai but made the most of the trip. They took the water taxis up and down the river, enjoyed some street food & saw some sights (well attempted to see some site). By this point the Southeast Asian City had no real shock value to it. They were pros now at the tuk tuk, motorbike, street food lifestyle. Kitty & Santa still enjoyed every moment of the adventure. They took it all in, even the fumes and pollution.

The only downside to their trip to Bangkok was when they attempted to see the palace. They were escorted out of line in the 90 degree weather and pushed into a separate line. Had they won the lotto? Was this their lucky day? They waited patiently with the other tourists to see where they were going. They stepped inside of a small building and saw that there were rental clothing options. “Why would we rent clothes?” asked Kitty. “I would never wear that thing” said Santa. They looked around and noticed a pattern. Kitty and Santa were dressed for the summer day along with the other 30 people standing around them. When they looked to the separate line they noticed everyone was clothed from head to toe. “OHHHH” They both realized that this Grand Palace was a place of worship with temples and Kitty and Santa looked a bit disrespectful. They quickly got out of line realizing that rental clothes were not in the budget. As they looked at the temple from afar Kitty and Santa decided to sneak a peak past the guards. There wasn’t any disrespect in just getting a closer look from the outside, was there? When a guard turned his back at the exit Kitty and Santa slowly meandered their way in the exit. Some might say Kitty and Santa are rule breakers but in a city that dirty ya gotta expect a little crime 😉
