A young Thai woman greets us and shows us the condo and amenities of the building, including a 24-hour 7-Eleven. At the rear of the condo complex is a gate allowing entrance to one of Bangkok’s many canals. The condo is small by the standards we grew up with, but large by the standards of many large cities around the world. It has a very small outdoor patio and a nice view of downtown skyscrapers a few miles away.
We walk to the The "Sixth" restaurant for a late lunch. It turns out to be very small, accommodating maximum 25 diners. There is a 20 minute wait but the place is air conditioned and the reviews are very good. We write our name on the list and take a seat outside. We have timed it right, as within our 20 minute wait the list grows by 15 people.
Once we are seated inside we re-scan the menu and quickly order. The food is fresh, fabulous and inexpensive. A definite two-thumbs up! While we are eating the skies open up and Bangkok experiences a downpour. Luckily by the time William finishes his double espresso it has subsided to a light rain. It’s just enough water that I opt to buy a cheap umbrella for 120 bhat (~$4 US) on our walk back to the MRT. I’m sure I overpaid, but wasn’t going to haggle in the rain over 10-20 bhat.
