H-E-L-L-O BANGKOK

Let me tell you…twenty-two and a half hours from Georgia to Thailand without Face Book and internet connection is a long time. Thanks Delta. I was forced to watch an Adam Sandler movie, the first “Dirty Harry”, 109 episodes of “30 Rock”, and listened to every Bach Sonata Johann ever wrote. Although it did occur to me that I would love to have Tina Fey in the family; sooo funny. When we finally arrived and unpacked at the one-bedroom apartment we rented for the first two weeks, it was 1 AM Saturday, and taking a sleeping pill, we both slept until 3:45 PM. The sleeping pill worked. Showered, freshly attired and with Starbucks Vente tripple-shot skinny vanilla lattes to satisfy a caffeine desire, we hit the sidewalks for a three hour picture-taking tour of the neighborhood. Ahhh, the smell of the exhaust fumes, the roar of the traffic. Welcome to Bangkok! With nine minutes to go until a new day, time to get my beauty sleep in preparation for my beautification process tomorrow afternoon. Nothing to eat or drink till after surgery. I will commence my whiney stage in the AM. AND also in nine minutes, the beginning of the official fourteen day countdown to a glass of beloved wine. Below are some pics of our outside balcony and the view from it, and assorted typical shots along the way. Looking forward…A
