I'm back in the Big Mango, A.K.A. Bangkok
The airport wasn't crowded and I breezed through Immigration in 10 minutes. Maybe the 0630 arrival time helped
I took the Airport Train link into Bangkok, cheap and a time saver IF you are traveling luggage light. Airport to Phayathai interchage station (Interchange with regular Skytrain) was only 45 baht. The current exchange rate is 31.4 baht per USD.
I've been putting up with a ringing left ear so I went to Vibhavadi hospital to get it checked out. Vibhavadi Hospital PCL., Bangkok Thailand
Two trips to an english speaking Thai doc, hearing test, and meds (Tanakan, a standardized Ginko extract and vitamin B12) set me back $95. With our the meds the cost would have been about half as expensive.
Next stop, the dentist for a cleaning.
Its the low season now and you can almost set your watch by the 5 PM rains. Fewer tourists because I can always get a seat at the Took Lae Dee (Good and cheap) lunch counter at Foodland, Soi 5, Sukumvit. Time will tell how high the upcomming high season will be...
