Looking for my next trip

I've been in Thailand for 10 days or so and franckly I didn't even have time to go to Bangkok.

But trust me this is about to change.

I dont have that much time left but here are the two cities I plan to visit.

First, Ayuttaya. I know, I know, shame on me for not going there sooner.
The city is just 1h away from my campus and its one of the most famous city in Thailand history.

It was the capitale of the Kingdom of Siam before one king decided to move it to Bangkok.

It mainly about temples, beautiful landscapes and elephant ride.

I keep you posted on that one.

The second trip is going to be AWESOME. Mark my words!

I'm heading to Koh Tao.

I wanted to describe Koh Tao, but that is actually a terrible idea.

U'll just see the pictures..and then we'll talk about it.

But if u happen to have been in Koh Tao, please feel free to share any tip you might have..

Ok folks that's all. I'll come back when I have some pictures.

Here are just few pictures I took from the sky and at the airport

Living in paris is an experience by itself which may deserve a new blog.

But I'll be back in Asia in a week. So I'm back in business.

Linkin Park Live in Bangkok

Last week-end (I know I'm late) I went to see the concert of Linkin Park in Bangkok.

I must admit that I was surprised when I first heard that Linkin Park was coming to Bangkok. I was like "Why would they come here?" lol

Anyway, they did come. And even best was the ticket price to go to the concert.

For a place in the last category - meaning quite far away from the stage- I paid 600 bahts (or 13€).

This is 4 to 6 times less than what I would have paid in Paris.

I went with a lof of friends, French, German, Iranian and Thai. Yeah it's still united color of Benetton here.

So we went to the concert which was supposed to start at 5PM. The time was quite unusual and that should have brought our attention.

We arrive at the Impact Arena (a complex of buildings designed to host all kinds of conferences, fairs etc) at 4:30PM and it turned out that they were many guest bands playing before the actual apparition of Linkin Park at... 9PM!!

This could have been bearable if the guest bands were not playing some kind of Hardcore rock mainly made of horrible growls and wierd noises. Needless to say that it was incredibly painful for my ears.

Apparently there is one thai band named Ebola (yeah, just like the virus) which is very popular in Thailand. Id (not sure of the orthography), the thai friend was a great fan of them. Good for him.

While waiting, we went to some other buildings to find some foods. We ended up in one of these very common food center where you can find all kind of food, japanese, vietnamese, of course thai and western food. It was one of my worst experience in a Food center but I want dig that subject.

9PM found us in the middle of a huge crowd, made of normal people and less normal (meaning fanatic) people dressed in black and stuff.

Of course the concert started late, at 9h30PM.

Despite being quite far from the scene, I was seeing quite clearly what was happening on stage, and the 3 giant screens were there to help from times to times.

Speaking of the live prestation, it was HUGE, AWESOME, WONDERFUL and I can keep going like that for another page lol.

really, I was impressed by the quality of the show. The way the sets of lights were playing, the audio quality were outstanding.

I have the feeling that Linkin Park did come with their technical team, cause Thai people didnt really accustom me to that kind of quality (no offense, just a fact).

Linkin Park delivered a impressive performance too. I dont know how the singer manages to scream that much but I swear that If I try to do the same, I will lose my voice in less than half an hour.

I think that is one of the reason why the concert was that short. A mere 1h20, it was short but intense.

The audience was delighted during all the show, people were jumping around, singing half of the time. Of course, we had a fair share of more than just tipsy people.

It wasn't surprising, the were selling tons of beer outside, and the smallest format was a glass of...1 liter of beer.

I took very few pictures of the show, it was quite dark (it was an open air show), and I was quite far.

Overall, it was a great, enjoyable evening.

I'm still hesitant about going to the concert of Muse at the end of this month.
What do you think?

Pictures of Bangkok: Touristic places

I've made a post with pictures of normal Bangkok streets with cabs, buildings, ad banner and all those stuffs you have no idea how they look like until you come to visit Bangkok.

However, Bangkok as you know is also a very touristic city with a lot of beautiful temples and some interesting market.

These are the places I want to show here.

I created an online Album on my Picasa Gallery

I'm gonna add more and more pictures on this album.

Hopefully the embedded slideshow below will be updated automatically.

Feel free to comment and to visit my Picasa pictures gallery.

Thai Cuisine: Sweet and Sour Chicken

It's been a long time since the last time I blogged about food.

I know that you, readers, miss that so I'm gonna blog about it more often and I already have a bunch of food pictures.

Today dish is the quite famous and classic Sweet and Sour Chicken (can be Pork too).

Thai cuisine has a lot of dishes which mix sweet and salted. It's a little bit bizarre when You first try it but eventually you quickly get used to that.

So here are two pictures of this dish.

Of course, you eat this one with Rice (as usual).

Monitor Lezard spotted in AIT

AIT is a very green campus. To describe it best I would say that it's a bunch of buildings erected on the middle of a forest.

We are surrounded by trees, natural gardens and all kinds of insects that come with such an environment.

We even have a Lake (partly artificial but it still does the job) with a food booth nearby so that one can eat sitting just near the lake.

This welcoming environment leads to a very rich fauna and flora.

One day, I was going for lunch when I spotted this big monitor lizard near the lake.
It is one of the biggest lizard I've ever seen (actually IT IS the biggest).

you can see by yourself on the pictures below.

As usual, feel free to comment.

Hole in The Wall Initiative.

Normally I focus more on the travel/backpacking/Lifestyle subjects.
But from time to time I talk about other subjects.

Today I want to talk about one interesting initiative. The Hole-in-the-Wall initiative is basically trying to bring computer access to the poor children.

In the meantime, the aim is to help children to acquire new knowledge just by playing on computers without any external supervision.

What is interesting is that the computer is basically embedded in a wall and there is absolutely no restriction to the access.

The idea is that children will naturally learn, driven by their curiosity.

It's quite a counter-intuitive idea and the first time I heard about it I was thinking :" Whats the point".

The essay, which came as a part of my assignment in my ICT (Information and communication technologies) course, is exploring that initiative in the context of e-learning.

Feel free to read it (click on this link for a full screen version) and comment.

You can download the full version as a PDF or as a Word document.
