Walking through the city jungle

After all the transfer from the Suvarnabhumi airport, I got off the BTS at Nana station. I walked Sukhumvit Soi 11 road from the station to the hotel I booked. The night, my eyes were just busy as much as Friday night.

While I was walking not only needed to see the google map on my hand and the other hand was carrying my luggage, but also easily distracted to see what’s going on in front of me. There were many people looks Indian getting off the bus, crowed with people in a open bar, some locals hanging around in front of 7/11 and a western man was walking fast with flowers.

The sidewalk was so narrow and bumpy. It was really hard to carry the luggage so I had no choice but carrying it through the car road. It was around 11 p.m the road was stuck with cars and tuk tuk and very narrow space for walkers.

Everything was looks so busy and it felt like walking through the city jungle.


수완나폼 공항에서부터 모든 환승을 거치고  나나역에서 내렸다.

예약된 호텔에 가기 위해 나나역에서부터 스쿰빗 소이 11번 길을 걸으며 내 두 눈은 금요일밤처럼 바쁘게 두리번 거렸다.  걷는 동안 한 손은 스마트폰을 들고 구글맵을 봐야했고, 다른 한 손은 캐리어를 밀었다. 그러면서 앞에 무슨 일이 일어나고 있는지 둘러보느라 눈은 틈틈히 딴짓을 했다.

인도인으로 보이는 많은 사람들이 버스에서 내리고 있었고, 문이 오픈된 술집은 사람들로 붐볐으며, 현지인들은 편의점앞에서 서성이거나 친구들과 어울리고 있었고,  꽃을 든 서양남자가 빠르게 걸어가고 있었다.

보도는 좁고 울퉁불퉁해서 캐리어를 끌기에 정말 힘들었다. 자동차가 다니는 도로로 캐리어를 끌 수 밖에 없었다. 밤 11시쯤이었는데도 차도는 차와 툭툭으로 정체되었고, 사람이 그 사이를 걷기에도 좁았다.

모든게 바쁘게 보였고, 도시정글을 헤쳐나가는 기분이었다.
