Bangkok Flash and plug for China Air

Hi all, just got into Bangkok and wow is it warm! Summer is just beginning so temps are running about 80+ degrees. It took a while to get here, about 20 hours. But could have been worse - lady next to me was returning home to Thailand from Sarasota and had been travelling non-stop for 30+ hours. The longest leg for me was 14 hours to Taipei - I have never watched so many movies- all good - check out the Capote flick! Anyway, China Air is the way to go. Even in economy class, you get to choose from a huge selection of movies, you get house slippers, and dare I say, really good food (ok, this is coming from someone who loves cafeteria food!). As of my departure day, I did not have a place to stay in Bangkok (procrastination rearing its ugly head again!). But a last minute confirmation call to China Air brought up the question of where I was staying the night. Voila!, they set me up! I got off the plane and there was Kan (hotel rep) to whisk me through the lines and get me to a comfortable hotel in no time at all! So here I am, blogging you already and I haven't even been in Bangkok for more than 2 hours. Ok, I am off to check out the sights, what I can squeeze in for less than a day! It's a flash alright, and did I already tell you that compliments of China Air - I get dinner and breakfast, too! It really is all about eating! Until next time, Jackie
