New Years Day- Zombie Apocalypse

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/fc5/11059212/files/2015/01/img_1198.jpg

7pm, 1 January: what is normally a hustling and bustling street is deserted. No street food, shops closed, even the rats appear to be having a lie in.

The long holiday for New Years meant many street food venders and shopkeepers closed up and headed back to their hometown- perfect time for a long walk and pretending it’s zombie apocalypse time in the BKK. It’s fun to see Bangkok in a deserted state.

I had lived in San Francisco for 15 years and was working on a project in Thailand. Generally I spent 2 weeks in Bangkok and then 3-4 weeks in San Francisco. Did Bangkok begin to feel like home? Yes, and No. Bangkok and the Thai culture forced me to feel many things, the change in culture and environment was so dramatic it forced the decision- embrace or ignore. I embraced and made Bangkok my home and base in 2009. I have enjoyed living in Bangkok, experiencing Thailand and the entire ASEAN region.
