Miraculously Bangkok

I guess I’ve finally seen it all… a cab driver who could miss the turning to Bangkok's Don Muang International airport, first time in my 20+ year of travel to Thailand....and believe you me there is no U-Turns along that road, all the way pass the next town of Rangsit a good 20 minutes away.

So in great anxiety, constantly praying for no bad traffic or car breakdown, I finally reached the departure gates just 40 minutes before flight time, i.e. 5 minutes after the counters would have closed for the flight.

Ready to do battle with any passenger service officer, I rushed to the counter …only to find that the flight has been delayed.

If that’s not Bangkok then what is? One bad makes up for another...and things are smoothed out in this earthly paradise.
