After freshening up at our hotel we decided to take a longtail water taxi upriver in search of a dinner cruise that we'd heard was pretty good. So we got dressed in our nicest clothes - me in a snazzy new shirt and Jenny in a fancy dress - only to look kind of stupid standing on the wrong dock. There we were, western would-be fashionistas waiting on some bewildered woman's private jetty for a longtail that would never stop. Before too long we found our way to the right place - heading in the wrong direction.
Riding further and further down river, we considered bagging the whole idea. But once we disembarked, we found a perfectly nice dinner cruise option just a block away. The meal was delightful, the band was fun, and the night was wonderful as we watched the city roll by. Returning to shore we hailed a standard taxi (well, actually, the "Number 1 Taxi in Thailand" according to the driver's business card) and turned in just as sprinkles of rain began to fall.
