    I am very excited to finally see your (Pakarang), unfortunately several/many years after you moved back to Norway. My wife and I will be stopping in Bangkok for a couple days. We are very excited to seek out some hawker stalls and street food. Though still mourning I am sure it will be a fun place to visit.

      Pilotdane! What a superb Asian tour you two are having! And next Bangkok! - It looks like we will miss being there at the same time by just a few days!
      Yeapp, I know, I've been so obsessed by completing posts of this season's s Edinburgh cruise ship spotting that I haven't put anything in “Seagull away a while” yet! My flight (totally indulgent treat - A380 in business!) arrives in BKK on Sunday 4th ,but I'll only be in Bangkok for a couple of days before flying north up to Chiang Mai on the 7th.

      So great hearing of both your travels to my "home".... (if I can call it that....)...

      I'm booked for several trips already in 2017... January, February and in March as well..... 3 weeks each. It's great to feel busy and it's great to have this to look forward to. I have never felt at home in Norway, not even after having returned so many years ago. I don't find my place in Scandinavia.... but Bangkok, and Thailand, I feel at peace, ease and in total tranquility.

        An enthusiastic group who enjoy art meet to sketch and paint the iconic 1970s modernist architecture of the Dusit Thani Hotel in Bangkok, which is scheduled for demolition next year:-

        Searching through my photos of Bangkok, I can only find one of the hotel, and it shows the merest glimpse of it peeping up between the trees of Lumpini park. It's the building on the right of the picture with the spire.



        My photo was taken in January 2016 when I was staying at the SO Sofitel (2012 architecture and design) at the opposite end of the row of buildings along Rama IV Road that overlook the park. How quickly styles change through the decades. Now I want to stay in the Dusit Thani while I still can!

          WAOW! THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing that post: I had not seen the news that the old DUSIT THANI was to be demolished next year. I had no idea.... I better get my photos updated on my next trip to Bangkok. Perhaps even see if there is any vacancy to spend at least one night there, even though I normally now stay in a condo.

          The drawings by the local artists look amazing - wish I had talent like that!
