searching for Tom

and Buddha

Thursday 20th December, 1984.
Golden buddha Bangkok

Golden buddha Bangkok

Breakfast at Hello restaurant. No Tom. Suspect too spaced out in Koh Samui to bother coming up. Spend morning on buses going to Surawong Road and Air Burma. Bargain for flight (yes really!) and provisionally book for Jan 10th and 17th, Bangkok Rangoon Bangkok, for 4,300B. Have to confirm booking later but get receipt for deposit which will do for visa. Burmese Embassy in nearby Sunin Road but shut at 12. Get lost in Chinatown. Amazing little shops around the streets spilling out onto the pavement. Buy ½ kilo oranges (Sum) for 4B. Will probably go to Chang Mei without Tom. But no flights to Burma from Chang Mei. German tourist shot dead, and wife blinded, in hills north of Cheng Mei today. ~Visit Golden buddha near railway station.
