Bangkok hit me first with the heat, getting my heart beating in tune to the flashing neon and vibrant street art. The lyrical sing song greeting, sawadee kha, drew me further in with a smile. The toe tapping percussion of the constant question, "tuk tuk?" brought me to my feet. The steam and smells of street meat filled my head and lingered like the lyrics to a favorite song.  As we danced in the street, cheersed with a Chang, we let Bangkok leave her mark on us permanently.

Khao San Road

Any day of the week, a normal street during the day with merchants and a few open bars.  As the sun goes down, slowly the music gets turned up, the bars and dance floors spill out into the street and the market booths come out. You can get a sampling of scorpion or an array of other creepy crawlies to crunch on. Carve a steak from an alligator on a spit and listen to the calls and pops of what else is available, around the corner...
