Thailand: Bangkok

Phyllis and Jack in Bangkok

Bangkok 

My friends and high school classmates Phyllis and Jack were on a tour of Southeast Asia.   Their first stop was Bangkok.

Since I live in Bangkok, it was a great pleasure for me to show Phyllis and Jack some of my favorite sights.

We spent two days together, sightseeing in Bangkok, Ayutthaya and Lop Buri.

But mostly we had "stories" to share!  The period from high school until now contains a rich mine of people and places and events!  

Bangkok: Punk Rock Girl

Bangkok

Thailand

June 20, 2014

Today I participated in the “Punk Rock Girl Shoot.”

Along with eight other amateur photographers and our leader, professional photographer Dennie Cody, we spent three hours this afternoon photographing the unique model Tanya, the Punk Rock Girl. *

The shoot took place at a vacant lot/playground/graffiti park at Ratchathewi in downtown Bangkok.

Tanya changed her outfit four times.   She was creative, emotional and beautiful.

Please see for yourself.

Bangkok: "Built for Comfort. Built for Speed. Always on Time"

Dear Speed Lovers,

I am taking a break from writing my travel letters to visit The Emporium – a high-end shopping mall: Chanel, Hermes, Ungarao, etc, etc, etc.

The Emporium is sponsoring an exhibition of high-end automobiles, built for speed, and I daresay, comfort.

Next to each outrageous auto, an equally outrageous wrist watch is on display: Breitling and Bentley, and Blancpain and Porsche, etc.

Thailand: "Winter Adventure"

Miami, Florida

Monday December 17, 2001

My Dear Family and Friends,

Sawat -dee,

I just checked the temperature readings on my Internet Home Page

London……43F - 6C Rain

Bucharest…27 - 2 Snow

New York….40 - 4 Rain

Kabul………50 - 9   Small arms fire, but can’t confirm

Bangkok ….89 - 32 Sunny * *

I made the right choice for my winter adventure.

Of course I could stay home, hang out at the pool (85F - 30C) and Jacuzzi (105F - 40C) and have a beer on South Beach on New Year’s Eve. Not this year.
