a muslim hotel

a mix up with reservations for our brief stay in bangkok results in a stay at a welcoming muslim hotel. the only downside is no alcohol on the premises…. (but we do sneak in a few cold beer, which taste wonderful with the roasted chicken m. buys from a street vendor). i find it an odd juxtaposition to have our little hotel, with its garden sided restaurant and luscious foliage, alongside a large noxious canal. i wonder at the health of the teenage boy i see swimming in the canal the first evening (given that at times, one could smell the raw sewage that ran through the waters….).
