Took a trip to Pattaya with a Chiang Mai friend – Jack – so I could go to the doctor in BKK Siriraj Hospital and see about setting up the dual stent operation. – I thought I would have at least 2-3 months waiting period but they booked it in 2 weeks – May 7th. not even time for me to get all worked up. Don, who lives in Pattaya, said he will go with me Saturday and Charlie will visit me in the hospital on Sunday – booked a private room in the hospital for the operation – it has a TV and sleeping room for guests. Estimated maximum cost expected is only 300,000 Baht. $8,500
We arrived on the last day of Songkran and drove into the thick of the water throwing along the Sukhumvit Hwy. I did get to show Jack some of the local sites but he had no problem finding his own way and I think he is now planning one moving there – LOL. The Gay Candy Store. We took time to visited Khao Chee Chan and surrounding area and very close new attraction they are building – some kind of upside down and other cartoonish houses.
Not too many photos – worried about the operation – will post after next week and see how everything is going.
