02738: Quick In, Quick Out

And just like that, this trip is almost over. We all knew from the get-go that this was going to be a very short trip as other obligations ruled out the chances of a longer stay. But it was quite prudent to choose a hotel attached to a mall as our temporary home in Bangkok as that has at least given us options for things to do without going too far away.

But it also means the barest taste of what the country has to offer, especially given how we haven't really experienced all that much beyond this mall and the area immediately surrounding it. But I guess this just stresses that future trips are merited, at least over the course of the next 6 months or so. I'm not sure what we'll be able to manage but we'll see how things go.

Will be flying back to Manila after lunch and the direction of our travel means that we'll lose the hour we gained entering this timezone. I'll need to burn a little midnight oil tonight to get some work done to make up for the lost Monday, but on the whole, it has been a pretty good stay with a lot of good eating.
