    Soi Bangla 2003

    Just found some old pictures from an early trip, this was the world cup trip back in 2003 and Bangla was still open to traffic.

    Used to able to park outside Shark Club back then ... at worst a bit further 300/500m down Rattuthit 200 Pee Rd.

    10 years on - reckon Bill's siggy line becomes evr more true: "The future aint what it used to be".
    Its My Life .....!

    One year later, 2004 and a view from Peter Pan Hotel on Nanai 2 across to where the tower cranes are ready for building JungCeylon.
    The shortcut across the smelly swamp via the sewage works and onto Ratty Rd opp Holiday Inn was a delight!

    One thing hasn't changed - you can still park at the end of Soi Seadragon - but it's under Kee Hotel now 555!

    Was the great outdoor Thai restaurant opposite the Rasta Bar there then in the "carpark"?
    Sipping from the Fountain of Youth that is Thailand.
