Journal Entry:
I got up early again, and spent the morning doing laundry, checking email, and walking down to Khao San Road. In Khao San I tried to pick up my ticket to India but was told that it wouldn't be available until after six this evening. I walked to the nearest navigable canal and caught a series of canal boats to Asoke and then walked to the Sky Train. On the way I passed the Grand Pacific Hotel - where my parents were staying last time I was in Bangkok - and I remembered that they had a very good free map so I went up to the seventh floor to get one. For fun I took the sky train one stop away from Siam Square - to someplace I hadn't been before. All that was there was a very ritzy shopping mall. I wandered around and browsed the bookstores, and then ended up going to see the movie Meet the Parents. After the movie I retraced my earlier route and picked up my ticket from the travel agent.
