The first thing that greeted me in Thailand was the humidity. My body was constantly sweating, and losing weight was apparent. I could see why people instantly traveled to Thailand it had that perfect marriage of good weather, action packed fun with cheap prices. Bangkok was port no.1, an impressive city that at times looks very similar to any major high rise American city. Glittering Buddhist temples dotted the road sides and people seemed to plan their day around avoiding the rush hour traffic jams. This place had it all and was far less naive and innocent than India. nightclubs, shopping markets, ladyboys. prostitutes, ping pong shows, tasty food, Thai massages, suped- up cars, it really has it all!
Could session 2 live up to session 1....... Almost.... but not quite. The night before I had spotted some guy busking with a small guitar and harmonica at the west end of the super-busy Khao San road, Thailand. The following day I set up shop there at around 8 pm. It went well I have to say and I made around 350 Thai baht which could put me up for 2 nights in budget accomodation (very budget I will add!). I didn't do as well as India but it was still a success. The noise was the main issue with nearby music and road traffic sporadically blaring from different angles. This noise reduced my session to no longer than an hour and a half, I found myself straining to be heard and more so selecting songs that projected well and "cut through" the crowd. I still got people taking photos and videoing with their phones like India. Like Darjeeling too. one particular couple stayed there for almost the whole busking session and made sure I got the wave of appreciation before they left.
