We are back home in Bangkok. We flew from Miami to London on Friday night. After spending about 10 hours in London we flew to Bangkok. Due to the 11 hour time shift I woke up at 3 AM this morning.....OK, I went to bed last night at 9 PM so I only have myself to blame.
The British Airways lounge in London is one of the best in the world. It used to be the Concorde lounge before the plane was put into mothballs....but, it still has its name.
What does this have to do with SLKs? Well the place, like the SLK, is really classy. The complimentary Champagne allowed me to 'relax' in front of the plasma screen Manchester United game while my wife shopped in Terminal 4.
The long flight from London to Bangkok was uneventful (we did not crash
Last night I unzipped both our Bangkok cars (S and SLK) from their protective coverings. Both started perfectly. I don't have a trickle charger for them (unlike what I have on the SL) as our house keeper starts them once a week while we are gone.
Right now I am killing time until the Shangri La hotel opens for breakfast. As we live right next door to the Shangri La it is more convenient than going to the market (Yes, we had nothing in the fridge but cheese and wine.....and since I had my last glass of wine before going to bed---one of many during the past 36 hours---I figured it would not be a very good wake-up beverage).
It's now almost 5 AM. Maybe I will have that glass of wine....nah, better not.
Anyway, happy Monday to everyone! Yes, it is Monday here.
And in just 5 more days Songkran starts. My very best holiday!
