This was the first trip that I spent many evenings with the same guy, a 24-year-old Vietnam guy I had come to know on my previous trip. We became very comfortable with the other's company. Having said that, I still frequented the massage shops I enjoyed in the past plus a new one.
 
(I'll be posting my massage comments in Divine Madman's excellent massage thread in this forum)
 
This was also the first trip where I enjoyed the opportunity to meet three other members: Paulsf, Divine Madman and ggobkk. All are old Bangkok hands and wonderful companions.  I spent many evenings with Paul, watching the fascinating comings and goings on Soi Twilight from his regular perch at Maxis.  Thanks, Paul, for the memories. Just hope the soi will be there on my next visit.
 
Also hung out at Telephone on Soi 4 where the waiters may not know my name but certainly know what I drink.  Great guys all and a good place to meet my favorite guy after he get off work.
 
Since I'm not really a show guy, I leave it up to others comment on that front. However I'd be remiss if I didn't acknowledge the drag queen who appears outside Fresh Boys before the shows in the most extravagant costumes.  And she looked remarkably convincing in all of them. And since I was observing her from Paul's table at Maxis, I began to look forward to her nightly excursion across the soi to put hands on a young our waiter who returned the gesture. 
 
I can assure readers that's it's still possible to have a great time in Bangkok. Yes, if Twilight becomes a memory, we'll have to worker harder in pursuit of it. but I can't see myself not returning.  I very much want to leave this report on a hopeful note so allow me to quote from "One Night in Bangkok":
 
One night in Bangkok makes the hard man humble
Not much between despair and ecstasy
One night in Bangkok and the tough guys tumble
Can't be too careful with your company
I can feel the devil walking next to me

It was good met you in person and be able to tell you how much I enjoy your posts.

I’m of an age that I saw Murray Head in Chess sing “One Night...”
