On the weekdays I have started teaching English. This starts at 8 pm and is for an hour. If you are in the area please do pop in!

I have 6 students who are very good at conversational English but just need to build up their confidence.
One of the students bought me this very tasty gift
No I have not tried to smoke it! Inside the leaf which has been cooked is a very sweet coconut.
I taught the students always to ask themselves the following when writing:
My father taught me this 30 years ago, amazing how I am now teaching this!!
From WPT Gym there are a number of ways of getting to downtown Bangkok:
Pro: door to door service
Con: time consuming and can be very tiring in the hot weather
Con: can take up to two hours depending on traffic
I decided to try the bus, especially as today I was visiting the Gurdwara. The bus stop is on the main road and shows which busses stop there.
Bus number 60 will take you from this bus stop to the Grand Palace and costs 23 Thai Baht each way, a bargain!
Once you see the bus coming you have to flag it down, otherwise it will drive past you.
On the bus you just find a seat, the ticket inspector will come to you and ask your final destination, they will then give you the price.

Just outside the gym we saw this amazing creature just chilling after it had eaten a chicken.
The locals were prodding it and holding it up!! Believe me when I say this snake was very much alive!!
This coffee shop deserves a mention, about ten minutes walk from WPT Gym:
Lumpini Condo Town Ramintra
The wifi speeds are not brilliant but who cares when you have fantastic music, friendly staff and amazing coffee!

Fantastic green tea, you must try this!
With the green tea you are given a shot of sweet water, to wash down the bitter taste.
This morning I took a break from training, just needed to let my body heal itself. This is the most demanding activity my body has ever gone through.
I am still missing Sangeet, mum and dad as well as home life. People would just love to be out here training under a legend like Master Pimu, I would like to thank everybody for their massive help and support. The journey will be tough but hopefully after this I will not need a operation.
