Krung Thep, City of Angels
Leaving Kanchanaburi’s charms for Bangkok’s allure. It didn’t take long for Thailand to win over our hearts again.
It feels too soon to be leaving. We’re about to spend a month in Myanmar.
A stack of brand new US $ bills from a good old bank in Switzerland came with us, so our main task here was the visa. There is more than enough information online to make getting it completely hassle-free. These step by step instructions are still current. We’re staying at Marvin Suites hotel which is only about eight minutes by foot from the embassy. This made getting there early (about 7.15) a breeze. The line started getting longer after 8.00, and there were about 70 people waiting when we stepped back out into the street at 9.20, coolly tucking away our yellow pick-up slip.
We’re not sure about the internet situation in Burma, so we’re preparing to stash our impressions and pictures in a Myanmar treasure chest- for later….
