Today has been a day of polarities, more later. Firstly I must remember to collect my passport and visa at 4PM tomorrow afternoon from the Vietnamese Embassy.
Today has been a rewarding and frustrating day. I got a river boat taxi to the Sky Train station where I travelled to within walking distance of the Vietnamese Embassy. That was no problem at all. I then decided to travel and find a cinema. I was rewarded by finding this huge plaza with an amazing new cinema complex on the 7th floor. I watched Die Hard 4.0 in English in a very comfy air conditioned seat. There was only one other guy there in the cinema.
I then decided to get some chopsticks and a shirt from Chatuchak Market; it was only when I got there that I realised it is a weekend market. I decided to spend my time by using the deserted Metro system to go to the Grand Palace. I arrived at the palace and got a ticket, it was only then that I was informed that I could not enter because of my attire, I was not amused.
