BKK the return

In short, I set out to do the things I wanted to do and would like to return in the future. However, there is a difference between sitting in the equivalent of a chair on the elephant's back and riding an elephant. There is also a difference between touching a tiger that's drugged sleeping and playing with one that knows you.

Thanks to McDonald's, 7-Eleven and Starbucks, one can live almost anywhere in the world without feeling too far away from home and so to a certain extent tourism could simply be a name for an alternate reality of a lifestyle one is already familiar with.

Next stop, Bali.
