Sawatdii khrap in other words, Hello
Today is the first day... From Tbilisi to Kiev... from Kiev to Bangkok... I landed at 6 o’clock in the morning and before the plane landed the pilot informed us that there were 27 degrees in Bangkok ...
From the Airport I went straight to the Damnoen Saduak floating market, which is about 100 kilometers from Bangkok.
There is a huge turmoil from 10 to 12 in the morning. A needle can’t even be dropped in the tourist area :) Though there are more Thai tourists than foreigners
I could find only two hotels on this territory. I settled down in one of them and there is only me in the entire hotel and the employees who keep telling me “No English” with great joy :) It’s very difficult when you have to communicate only by using body language and not only at the hotel...
Perhaps a question can hit your mind here: If there are so many tourists, why aren’t there any hotels? The answer is simple - Because nobody stays here... They just go boating, eat the food prepared on the boats and then their time is over. Then they have to pass ahead to visit at least two or three tourist attractions and go back to Bangkok. I’m so grateful that they have even this hotel :))))
Two more surprises are waiting for me :) One is that there was no telephone to call to Georgia and I found the Internet only after searching for about an hour... I was used to the notices “Hotel”, “Internet”, “Phone” on every step in India... Here you should set your mind on the Thai wave... :)
Mercedes can complain to the Thai cook for illegal use of the design :))))
It doesn’t matter if there are not some things.... What is important is that they have a Terminator and you can take photos with him just for about 1.50 laries and you’ll be happy :)))) P.S. and the Terminator will be happy as well :))))
Tomorrow I’m going to see those places where they don’t expect the tourists and I’ll see the natural life of Thailand... Life is wonderful....
Thailand – Smile Country
The day started with a lot of smiles today ....Consequently, such kind of beginning has positive effect on everything :)))
I recommend to visit Thailand to those who are on a fruit diet :)
Note that a kilo of banana is about 50 tetris !!!
Before spotting the places I had to take care of food. After trying to explain me for a very long time what kind of bird meat the cook was offering me, all his tryings were in vain ... However, it was very delicious :))
I’ve walked so much today that I’ve got a sunburn :)
I got rid of the tourist chaos and went along the streets....
Here, as a rule, is more interesting and natural atmosphere ....
I came across this creature :) Which in fact didn’t seem quite cute :))
And these are the inhabitants of one of the rivers...
Some dogs are quite lucky :)))
The Family bathing
I suppose that I’ll stay in Damnoen Saduak for one more day. The people here left a very positive impression on me. They treat everyone very kindly. It doesn’t matter whether you are from here or from other country :)))
All of you must be interested what is the feeling like when you roll the Python around your neck with your own hands :))) It’s neither light nor slippy, and fortunately not even aggressive :) First of all ask about if it is hungry or not :) Or believe me it can justify its name :)))
This is the vehicle that can go round the whole town for only 2-3 dollars.
It appeared that there was very interesting “Elephant Show”...
They dance, they draw, they walk on two feet , they play on the harmonica and...
They have learned each action by the means of physical pain.... and we all like this and “clap” hands!!!!
