After 15 minutes bargaining, Chris is the winner every time, I happily retuned back to our hostel with this baby on my camera. MBK is the place in Bangkok to do your camera shopping, there is endless of camera shops and everything else you might want.
MBK also have a cinema on the top floor, right now Avengers is shown in English and even if I’m not a comic book reader I really enjoyed the movie. Next time I’ll bring a warm sweater though, it’s freezing inside.
I have a poster in front of me with a photo of the floating markets, underneath it says Bangkok – The city with many smiles and I agree, at least I smile a lot here. It’s hard to explain what makes me like this city so much, I think it’s a mixture of ever changing sourindings, here you will find monks mixed with tourists, vendors selling everything from fruit to fake university diplomas, in the evenings you hear good old rock tunes preformed by tiny Thai women with voices like Etta James and lets not forget about the amazing food sold for peanuts at every street corner.
Today has been great, up early as normal but we both brought our big cameras and slowly strolled along the streets for a few hours. In the afternoon the sky opened and we took refuge at the big Siam shopping mall, wallet is a bit emptier now but I am so pleased with my buy – ill show you guys tomorrow…
If I would describe Bangkok in a few words it would be vivid colors, spicy cents and flavors that makes you tongue sing of joy!
I’m walking around with a stupid smile on my face and driving Chris crazy when stating “I’m so happy” every five minutes. I already feel more at peace and longing to dip my head under a turquoise surface.
