Bangkok, Traffic Jam
I decided to go and buy some books today, I googled for a library that had English books and found three places to go it seems like I picked the one that was the closest yet it took me like an hour to get there, mostly due traffic jam.
I ended up in this “Emporium Shopping Complex” it is a fancy mall I was already expecting to be rip off in the book store but surprisingly the prices were very fair.
I spotted this Naraya store next to the mall, somehow my aunties hinted me to buy them stuff from that store and since I am going back for Christmas after buying some books (after like an hour and a half of deciding) I went and bought some purses for them, it was kind of funny to go to a store where only girls shop and pick a bunch of purses, anyway, I hope I made good decisions, I am already doubting my choice of colors, such is life.
On the way back the traffic jam was like 10x worse but somehow I didn’t notice I got into a taxi and after witnessing a small crash which was funny because it was very dumb, the driver told me that it would be better if I take the MRT (subway), I have no clue how to get back home in the MRT but I said to myself why not try the MRT anyway, right? Worst case I get lost, like I always do.
I took the MRT and I felt I was back in Hong Kong, is pretty much the same thing as the MTR in Hong Kong, I am guessing the same company built it.
Somehow, I managed to not get lost, which made me feel particularly proud, I think I am getting better at this thing called reading maps.
Bangkok reminds me of Maracaibo with the traffic of Caracas.
I think I will be here in Bangkok for a month and then I will go to Phuket for a month and two weeks or something like that closer to the ocean.
I should be busy the upcoming days either exploring Bangkok or working on BlissfulWays that honestly has been slow/delayed; Simon got back to school I moved to Bangkok, etc.
