    Tropical Heat Tour: Thailand Part 15

    Wednesday, August 15, 2012
    Bangkok, Thailand

    Dave from Dublin, Ireland at the Nat 2 Guest House in Banglamphu, Bangkok, Thailand.

    Yep, I took another day off. I snapped a grand total of two photos today. One of them was of Dave from Dublin, Ireland, who I’ve hung out with at the Nat 2 Guest House a few times. A teacher of product design back home, Dave is 40 and has been to Thailand several times over the past decade. He is super friendly and outgoing–the kind of guy who will fire up a conversation with anyone at any given moment. Dave also drinks like a madman and chain smokes like nobody’s business. He usually sleeps all day, comes down from his room around 5:00 pm, smokes, drinks and talks to everyone in the front entryway until 8:00 pm, then heads over to Thanon Khao San, the nightclub / restaurant strip, where he eats, then continues partying ’til dawn. One morning, I talked to Dave from 3:00 am until 5:30 am in the same spot as the photo above. I asked him how he carries on with this lifestyle back home with his job, and he said he barely gets any sleep on Friday and Saturday nights. Dave was due to fly back to Dublin very early on the morning of August 16, and said he wanted to get a few hours of sleep, but I’m sure he went out on another bender instead.
