Special Transportation in Bangkok

Special Transportation in Bangkok

While I was in Bangkok, I had an appointment to see the doctor at 9 AM. My doctor practices at Bangkok Christian Hospital, which is within walking distance of the Bangkok Christian Guest House. Unfortunately, the only way to cross Silom Road at rush hour is to climb the stairs to the BTS Skytrain platform, cross the street and come down on the other side. For someone with a knee recovering from a minor surgical procedure, this was not a good option. Taking a taxi is another option, but during the morning rush, all automobile traffic is directed away from the hospital and the taxi must go “around Robin Hood’s barn” to get to the hospital, through some of the worst traffic in Bangkok. While describing my dilemma to the staff at the Guest House, a staff member volunteered to take me on the back of his motorcycle. While I was not certain of this mode of transportation in Bangkok traffic, it was the best option available. It was not until we were halfway to the hospital that this staff member asked how often I had done this – ridden on the back of a motorcycle in Bangkok traffic. The answer: Never before this day! The photo was taken by an orderly when we arrived at the hospital – obviously with God’s blessing!
