It's been awhile since I've been to Bangkok- 6 years to be exact. I used to go at least once a year either for work reasons or for holiday. it's been too long and although there is a coup d'état at the moment, friends in Bangkok have assured me that it's all OK and even safer than it was before the takeover.
As I boarded my Thai Airways flight, my mind flashed back to all the wonderful food I'd experienced on past trips and my mouth immediately began to water. I can hardly wait to sink my mouth into a bowl of sour and spicy tom yum soup. I long to savor the sweetness of their awesome and juicy mangoes that are in season right now. But for now I have to be content with my inflight meal on Thai Airways, which really isn't so bad.
In fact, the meal was was quite tasty. For my entree, I chose the Thai Chicken Masala which was a great prelude to my trip. The small appetizer that consisted of some delicious smoked chicken was also surprisingly tasty and for the first time, finished everything on my tray.
I usually dread inflight meals, but some airlines really do it better than others. Thailand here I come!
