After walking in the Terminal 21 Shopping Mall quite a bit and having dinner there it was time to go to the opening drinks at #SteemFest. Went to the BTS station and the traffic on the road was heavy.
🎶Meanwhile, some music for you to enjoy as you read. This piece is part of Vivaldi’s The Four Seasons, particular the first of the 4 violin concertos, called Spring.
🎶让大家继续读的时候，欣赏一点音乐。这件作品是维瓦尔第的“四季”的一部分 - 4小提琴协奏曲中的第一首，名为“春天”。

Fiddled with some cash and got my ticket.
I had checked Google Maps but it was my bad and didn’t realise the journey involving changing to a boat until I reached Ratchathewi station.
Out of the station and I saw a “Hungry Nerd” but I am not hungry and I am trying to figure out if there is another way to Prince Palace Hotel other than by boat. Google Maps showed it’s possible to walk in less than 30 mintues. So, let’s go.
从车站出来，我看到了“Hungry Nerd” (“饥饿呆子”)，但我不饿，我想弄清楚是否不乘船前往酒店还有别的方法吗。谷歌地图显示，步行不到30分钟即可到达。 所以，走吧。
It was a bit of an adventure and although I saw the hotel from afar, I felt lost because it was dark in some streets and I had to learn to cross heavy traffic roads like the locals. Looking back, it was quite an unforgettable experience but we forgot to take pictures along the way. Even when we ended up in what looks like a dead end when there was a railway in front of us. Good thing Google Maps has street view and I manage to find a photo there:
After talking to a lady who I guess probably didn’t understand what we were asking much but pointed us across the railway, we saw her walked across and we followed and then continued following the journey on Google Maps where at one part walking through what looked like a closed market. Out at the other end, things were brighter and seems there were stalls selling fruits. Later, I checked Google Maps again and believe this is part of Bobe Market.
Further down, I crossed the bridge where there were also fruit sellers.
At the end of the bridge, we saw Prince Palace Hotel but it was still not near.
在桥的另一端，我见到了Prince Palace Hotel可是还不算近。
Finally, after about another 10 minutes walk, we came to our destination.
Interesting, they have a Chinese name there.
Took the elevator and went out at the 11th floor where the hotel lobby was.
Finally, the registration desk where we picked up the bag and badge. I'm sure some of you have seen what others have shown in the bag so I won't bother showing. I wonder who I’ll recognise first.
Going into pool area where the drinks are served.
After a long walk, the drink was welcome.
It was getting more crowded but my wife was tired after the long walk. So, we decided to go outside and find a seat.
Turned out the first person I recognised was @fitinfun but that was before @arcange started the #proof-of-hug thing.
She helped me take a picture of @sg1 and I.
Sitting there, I saw some people including a joyful @joythewander but missed taking a picture but luckily that wasn’t the last time I’d see her.
We left quite early and decided to use the Grab app to get a ride and it was quite smooth getting a car that time.
The car came and then took us back to our hotel.
