Rob Watson Media Podcast 004 – Impressions and Sounds Bangkok

17th November 2019 Rob Watson 0

I’ve just been mooching around the centre of Bangkok for the last couple of days, and while I walk about I’m wearing noise cancelling headphones and listening to music. The constant rumble of traffic is very difficult to escape from, and occasionally I’ve been able to find a location or a route that is away […]

I’ve been in Bangkok for over a week now, and I’m starting to feel that I am making sense of the place to a limited degree. I’ve put together some tracks and some rambling observations on my time here so far. Penelope Isles – Round Pink Floyd – The Dogs of War John Lennon – […]
