the little things: unusual sightings in Bangkok

hometown shout-out – a Kansas City bagel in a Bangkok bagel shop

Last year I wrote about my wish to capture a moment in words and pictures.  As Frank and I pass the halfway point of our Thailand adventure, I am struck by the desire to hold on to the bits and pieces of this time.  When we look back, I suspect it will be the “little things” about these two and a half years that define our expat experience.  It will be the scenes of Bangkok rushing past taxi windows, the fragrant spice and buzz of voices from food carts, the dinners with friends on steamy nights, and the moments we spend in what is truly our first “home” together.   “The little things” is a weekly glimpse into our Bangkok life.  This is what happens between the recipes.  

Other “little things” posts can be found here.

    Hmmm.. I’d love a glass of that wine, a sampling of cheese and then a little dip in that pool today, please:)

    If I could combine the wine tasting, cheese and pool to myself I think it would be the perfect afternoon!

    Now I read the other comments and see Just A Smidgen has the same idea. I’ll share if you like!
