I’m out of Nepal. The strike was canceled, so it was no problem getting to the airport today.
First impression of Bangkok: my God, it’s so clean! No piles of burning garbage on the sides of the roads? No cows in the streets eating from the piles of garbage that haven’t been set on fire yet? It’s fantastic!
After walking around a bit, I was struck by how quiet it is here – nobody honks their horns. What a concept – not honking your car horn when passing a chicken, duck, dog, cow, pedestrian, bicycle, motorcycle, or anything else on the road? Madness!!!
