As with every first visit to a country I have never been to, I wish my country was like theirs. This naive thinking really belonged to the period when I was younger.
Now that I have walked Bangkok almost twice yearly since graduation, I am increasingly hating it. The ugly side is increasingly apparent, as ugly as all human societies and social organisations.
Now as I land in yet another country I haven’t been to, I need not reserve judgement for the conclusion is without a doubt the same. A tourist would likely only walk the facade of that country.
