Imagine a life without AC in Thailand. You can’t. The minute you set foot outside you can feel the sweat beads forming on your face, neck, and arms. After a few minutes your neck begins to feel uncomfortable from how sticky it’s getting. Then it’s only a matter of time before your shirt is drenched.
Bangkok has to be one of the most interesting places I’ve traveled to. It’s unpredictable, but yet predictable. If anyone says traffic is bad in Los Angeles, Bangkok takes it to a whole new level. Making plans to drive into the city or driving out of the city couldn’t be more of a nightmare. Bangkok traffic literally doesn’t move. I was told on a street where a famous fried banana shop are sold. The store makes most of its money in traffic. They hire runners and send them out to the cars stuck in traffic. Who would have thought. And traffic rules, people make up their own rules as they drive along. Playing chicken and moving traffic cones are normal. Even paying police officers when getting pulled over is accepted and understood. It’s the Thailand way of life and as crazy as it seems with all the rules being bent, it works.
Chris and Peter making their ATP debuts!
Bangkok can sure be tiring though…..
Sorry Kerry! Had to
I couldn’t have asked for a better week. Spending time with close friends thousands and thousands of miles away is rare on the tour. Also eating cheap/amazing food and $8 massages. If only every week could be like that. But excited to play the next tournament as I will be playing the same opponent. There were many positives that came out of my last match and few things to work on and it’s not often you get the chance to play the same opponent back to back weeks. Hoping to carry those improvements over!
I’ll be back for you soon Bangkok!
