Bangkok Movie Madness & Kicked Out Of Kiribati [Season 2, Episode 24]
By Sheila Dee & Evo Terra - Skeptics & Third World Survivors
Just a quick follow up to the blighted phone booth cleanup show from a few weeks back: That crazy Bangkok notion looks like it’s going into action! But that’s not what we wanted to talk about with you on today’s program. Instead, we have two travel stories to share, one from Bangkok and one from Kiribati: 1. Bangkok Movie Madness Music credit: Upbeat Forever by Kevin MacLeod Bangkok maybe of the more diverse places to watch first-run movies. Sure, you can have your run-of-the-mill theater experience much like you would in any Western city. Or you can opt to live like a fat cat, soaking up (and paying for) the personal privilege of a VIP movie experience. But our favorite? The gritty throwback theaters of Lido and Scala. They’ve the best popcorn in town! 2. Kicked Out Of Kiribati Music credit: Thief In The Night by Kevin MacLeod Gary Arndt’s made a career out of travel. But it almost ended just a few months after he got started, thanks to an overzealous immigration agent in Kiribati. Then again, having a challenging experience early might have made him the cool cucumber of a traveler he is today. And you can all thank him for single-handedly (my words, not his) getting a stupid law changed. And that’s the show! Our travel calendar is starting to fill up again. Next week, Evo’s taking a solo trip to Vietnam. After that, we’re headed to a rocket festival in northern Thailand, a beach getaway after that, and then he’s off to Sri Lanka. So much for settling down. Remember, you can follow along with those events as they happen. Facebook Live, Periscope, Snapchat, Instagram… there are all sort of ways we document travels as they happen, rather than waiting for a once a week show to come out.
