I'm dedicating the next fortnight of my journal to the quirks of Bangkokians.
This one deals with quick meals.
Oktoberfest* in Bangkok. We need ice in our beer!
* Requires German spelling.
PS: Beer and Beirut food blend nicely.
"Please wash hands before leaving the rest room."
Being late is totally expected in Thai culture.
PS: Even Bangkok taxis don't worry you with rules.

PS: But, the cab drivers who operate the strictest taxis usually get no tips ever.
Pausing from Bangkokian quirks, let's have some Indian food.
PS: And, a squid leg.
Next: Part III
