Sorry for the delay on these photos.
I'm sure you guys have been waiting on the edges of your seats for me to post these photos... right?
Right.
Well after a long 8 hour ride from Ranong to Bangkok (BKK), we finally arrived at the BKK bus terminal at 5 in the morning. Yup 5 in the morning. We then took a local bus to Silom to find our hostel, and after we settled in and took a much needed shower we hit the streets of BKK.
Silom, BKK in the A.M.

There's a wide variety of transportation options in BKK. There's the Tuk Tuk (perfect if you want to increase your chances of lung cancer), taxi cab, bus, monorail, subway and boatbus. Since BKK is situated along the Chao Phraya River, the boat bus is a sometimes the fastest option to the get to northern part of the city. Sitting on those boats reminded me so much of Venice riding up and down the Grand Canal passing Ponte Rialto on my way to St. Marks... (blank stare). BACK TO THE PHOTOS!

Ohmygod.
That picture of the guard literally took my breath away. Your composition is amazing! I had to pause and actively try to stop my heart palpitations.
You BAMF you.
