Sarah's Chonburi Pictures 13th January 2008

OK folks .. you'll need to use your "back button" to return to this page if you decide to click on the thumb nails to get the bigger picture.

My first day in Thailand I didn't really venture out, to shy, timid and far to hot. So here's a few shots of my first hotel room ( 701 ) which was "mine" till the insecticide incident on the 26th January.


A girl can never have enough storage, though this is a deluxe room it would have been nice to have had a few more shelves in the wardrobe.


Well that little water spray is such a good idea. Everywhere I've been the loo's have them .. something I think I'll have to get installed at home.


Sorry about the shaky cam .. hand held at not a lot of speed .. LOL .. the bathroom was quite nice, the bath / shower is too the left, the door to the right and in that room 701 everything was on the correct "hand" if you know what I mean, it's a right handed room, the second room I had next door later on ( 702 ) is a left handed room .. DOH.


Big screen TV and a dvd player, there's a fridge under the TV in the cupboard. I emptied a lot of the hotel "mini bar" stuff out and put a few things of my own in there. I can borrow DVD's to play from the 7th floor coffee / lounge area .. if I had the time. The FFS patients tend to hide away and live on room service, so the DVD facility is probably useful to them.


That is a very big bed .. just a shame Karen isn't here to share it with me .. at home I sleep on the right of the bed, but here it's more convenient to do everything from the left, so when I roll towards the bed side table my right arm is free to grab what ever I might need.


On the back of the welcome card from the clinic is a very basic map, showing all the key things a stranger in town might need .. shopping and eating places, but why anybody would want to go to a MacDonald's here beets me !!!!!

Pictures .... day 3....
