I don’t know how I am still functioning, but I’m waiting for a delayed reaction when the sleepiness hits. After over 26 hours of travel time, with less than 3 hours of sleep on the plane, I left Bangkok Airport at 1.00am Monday 28th. I’d left Bermuda about 10.00am Saturday, so the time-difference made it seem like I’d travelled forward in time by a day.
It was after 2.00am when I got to my hotel – still wide awake. So I went for a massage (less than $10), thinking that would send me to sleep. Nope! I went to bed at 4.00am and was wide awake again at 7.30am.
Up bright and early, I decided to visit a few temples after breakfast. I used a variety of transportation options, including the SkyTrain, water taxi, tuk-tuk, and river express boat. I went to several temples, of various sizes, including the large Grand Palace.
There are over 400 temples in Bangkok. I saw several today and am now ‘templed-out’ for a while. I’ll have to find some other attractions to visit tomorrow.
