Back to Bangkok

We're back in Bangkok for the third and final time. We're again staying just off the Khao San Road on Soi Rambutri, this time at a fantastic guesthouse / hotel called O Bangkok.

Being as Anne has not been to Bangkok before we're spending most of our time taking her to our favorite spots from our previous visits; China town, Jim Thompson’s house, Wat Pho, Wat Arun, the Grand Palace and Wat Phra Kaew. We wrote about them on some older posts so wont repeat ourselves.

We've also been to some new places too. On Sunday night we headed out for a couple of games of ten pin bowling at possibly the swankiest bowling alley we've ever been to, Blu Rhythm and Bowl. It was a really great bowling alley, far better than most of the flea pits that we get at home.
The big surprise was Liz coming last on the first game. She's normally does really well and always scores into the mid hundreds, where I'm quite lame and need the bumpers putting down the side channels like when a four year old plays. Somehow I managed to fluke a score of 141, Anne also got a great score of 133 (record best scores for both of us) whilst Liz trailed in last on 91.
Things were returned to normal on the second game when Liz wiped the floor with us both.
We've also been to what is probably the strangest bar we've been to. A place called Full Tank which is on the forecourt of a disused Shell petrol station. It's a very strange setup as the tables, chairs and bars are scattered amongst the petrol pumps!
