today’s bangkok wtf?

I’m eating som tam with my friend Gerry in a cute little place in Thong Lo. “Sorry”, I say, momentarily distracted in the middle of her story and looking away, “there was an elephant.”

It was a really big one, too, an adult with a mahout on her back, so big she obscured the entire window.

Then on the skytrain back home, a farang man boards the train, wearing a furry gorrila mask. Gerry looks at her watch. “Hmm”, she says, “7pm, is too early for people to be really drunk.”
