I’m struggling to upload images today using the busy dapp.
The wifi at the hotel can be a little iffy and this is my second attempt at posting tonight.
I bailed in the bowling as I was too knackered to go through with it.
The event looked great and the food was awesome but I’m not really into banging music.
Getting to the event this morning was a case of following everyone else and hoping for the best.
@lukestokes seemed to know the way and so we followed him on to one boat and then another along with 15 other miscellaneous Steemians
You do have to have some dexterity to get on and off these things and I’m sure there are accidents
One bad move and you could be swimming with the crocodiles and picking up something nasty if not eaten.
Still it’s an effective way to get around the city and cheap too.
The boats remind me of trains and can set off at breakneck speeds.
Photography can be tricky if this happens at the wrong time
We arrived at our destination after a sticky walk of around 1.5km after disembarking.
The AC was a welcome relief but the lack of free WiFi not. Things were just kicking off.
Rather than repeat what everyone else will tell you, I will present you my point of view.
There may have been 150 people or maybe a little more.
It was all little formal to start with while Steemit Inc took the stage to present their vision.
If they deliver then I’ll be a happy chap.
Their track record in the past has been poor but it sounds promising.
@anthonyadavisii sought me out after arriving in the afternoon.
Despite the massive heat he seemed to want to wear a lot of clothes.
It could be his military training but he seemed oblivious to it not appearing to be breaking even a sweat.
Despite his attempts to amplify @enforcer48’s discord audio voice by way of a tin can he had to concede defeat.
The lunch was quite epic and my first real taste of Thai food.
I have to say it was a massive improvement on some of the SF3 food we ate last year.
The toilet facilities at the event for the blokes unfortunately did not stretch to allow reliving ones bowels.
The ladies had it good while us dudes had to walk to the nearby massive shopping centre after lunch.
I don’t really want to stretch this topic any further but I would like to say that hygiene in this area surpasses ours in the UK.
I also don’t want to make this post a tag fest though I could. I’ll leave those kinds of posts for later.
@revisesociology and myself took off before the bowling started on a lengthy trip back to the hotel.
When it’s rush hour you can forget cars and tuk tuks.
We tried to negotiate a price with one but he balked when we batted him down to 50 BAHT from 200.
The train seemed like a good idea and at 23 BAHT each and 2 stops later we calculated that it reduced our walking time by a whole 6 minutes.
After a 45 minute walk we arrived back after walking over numerous overpasses and down several dark alleys drenched in sweat
On route, I did check for cheese toasties as @nathen007 told me to ‘experience one’ at 7/11. Maybe they had sold out so I’ll try one for breakfast tomorrow.
There’s another 7/11 around the bend from the hotel. I need to know what I’m missing.
