    Breaking a little bad in Bangers

    After a long day and flight made more uneventful by the current airline trend of manufacturing night during daytime voyages (I think it’s to keep passengers subdued), followed by interminable queues at Bangkok immigration, I settled my starving self into this little regular near the guesthouse for khao pad Thai pak (rice pad Thai with veggies) and pad kee mao […]
