I stayed on Khao San Road when I was in Bangkok. When you're on Khao San Road, you get your falafel here:
Notice the red Fanta for the spirits.
Also on Khao San Road you'll find some wacky performance art. I was out with Ryan, who used to work with me in Ban Phe, and we came upon this scene. I looked at the little baby doll (which is dancing to the music) and said, "wow, that's creepy." Ryan looked at the guy's white mask and said, "yeah, that's creepy." Then we each saw the other thing, and whoa!
Taxis in Bangkok sometimes have advisory stickers like this one:
That's no weapons, no sex, no animals, no alcohol, no durian, no cigarettes.
I still haven't tried durian. It's okay, since I think I'll always go back to Thailand.
