After our live aboard trip in the Andaman Sea we went back to Phuket for one night before we flew back to Bangkok. Unfortunately, while I escaped the stomach bug on the boat it hit me almost immediately after we stepped off it and for the next couple of days I was sick, which made the trip back to Bangkok a miserable experience. But we used the couple of days we had in Bangkok for some shopping we needed to do in preparation for our onward journey to India. We also hooked up with our friend Suchada again and met for lunch and dinner with her and Dzhangar, one of DDI’s employees in the Moscow office, who is on an assignment in our Bangkok office for accelerated development. It was good seeing him again and while I had met him and spent some time with him during visits in Moscow and Europe, Anna only had spoken with him on the phone and via email related to several projects.(Dinner with friends in Bangkok)
It was great to spend such a nice evening together with friends and some great Thai food before saying good bye to Suchada, Dzhangar and Thailand. We knew that we would miss Thailand but we were also looking forward to very different experiences in India.
