So much for me posting every week, 2 posts in 4 months. I know myself and I am the person who loves living life not documenting all of it myself. Its not even up for debate my next trip will include a full time video/photographer who travels with me all the time. I truly believe I could inspire thousands if not millions through the story of my adventures to do the same.
So now its already the end of june almost july I am sitting in my hostel lobby while I write this ‘we bangkok“. I will start with the most recent events since they are most fresh in my dome. Staying in a hostel has its benefits especially while traveling alone. I have currently split from my two friends Garrett and Steve they are currently in europe. We were all in different parts of the world for the last month. This week they both reunited in Poland together and they both are enjoying perogis and vodka daily. I have now been in bangkok now for over a week and I loved it so far. Depending on the part of of town you are in you will have a vastly differently vibe of the town.
Yesterday I went over to Khao San “backpacker mecca” road with about 7 people from my hostel at about 5 pm. When I walk down the street the suit tailors yell to me “Obama Obama” and point to a picture of a black man in an suit. They can be quite funny, but not as funny massage girls in patong beach in phuket I will share later. When I meet thai people they say ” Wat kuntreeee you come from “. Then their eyes light up ” OOOHHH America very good” and typically throw up their thumbs enthusiastically. When people say they don’t prejudge people based on looks that is bullsh#t. I have not met black dude from america in thailand so far that is not mixed raced under age of 25 “Correction I did meet one black dude from florida in chiang mai who was 22″. Typically your darker skinned black people are from africa that are in thailand. That being said tho I have met a handful of black dudes under 25 from england tho.
Thai people are generally VERY friendly people and warm people. If you read my post before you heard I was called a nigger and that had me putting my
guard up quite a bit. I have now been here for 4 months and can tell you that it was drunk isolated indecent. So many thai people and Thai women “Evil Grin” are curious and excited to learn about black american people. I have had many thai people open their hearts and home to me made feel very welcome. I already planning my trip back to thailand.
I will share my experience in phuket with you quickly I could go on for 3 pages with stories. I will do a video a little later with part 2 of the stories. So its like 10 pm of tuesday evening and I head over to patong beach area. I hear ” CHOCOLATE MANNNNNN” I turn and its pretty massage lady smiling then continues “you want masagggggge”. I turn and smile say its ok thank you then she continues on and I respectfully declined. It is quite an experience being called a chocolate man.
I have a lot better stories that have happened also I will share that in my next post, and I will create a video explaining the situations I love acting them out.
LEAVE COMMENTS let me know what you hear about more and less off. I will make it happen.
I love this
