Coming home is straight forward but a tiring journey that will combine a train and some of flying.
We took a night train from Chiang Mai to Bangkok on 2nd class aircon sleepers this time which costs about 1700 Baht for two.
Some cars were old Japaness Shin-Kan-Sen, and
some are Korean company Daewoo made cars.
It’s got a small table for eating or reading.
and it turns into two bunk beds like this.
In the middle of cars, a dinning car is there where late hungry owls gather in, but the food are expensive for the quality. 170 Baht for a small dish. Bring lots of food from outside if you are a heavy eater or drinker.
We had our last cups of the black pearl tea here at Mr.Bun by the Bangkok railway station, and tea-ed off to the airport.
Anita Desai once said
“Wherever you go becomes a part of you somehow.”
Well this chaotic traffic jam will be a part of us somehow.
And all the people we met on the way, including ones we never talked at the airport will be part of us somehow.
The moments we smiled, got frustrated, scared, satisfied, honored and loved also will be part of us somehow.
When the crew shouts out for tea or the meal while the untroubled sun shines deeply into the plane we are in and makes this place so magical, way up the cloud, I can see this will be part of us somehow.
A secret of a female cabin crew bailed in a thousand year’s smile on the Royal Brunei air too will be part of us somehow.
The mysterious taste of these Bruneian teas gulped at the Brunei airport will be part of us somehow.
And I can surely tell her that it is not the scenery or the food but it’s people that take a person’s heart to the place. She might have got a glimpse of it already I wish.
