I’m so disappointed. I received an e-mail from a friend last night who informed me that the Amazing Race had been through Lopburi! When did that happen? She wanted to know if I knew about it. No!! Lopburi’s not a big place – well, not that big a place and I would’ve thought that the Thai people would’ve been all over this American show in town.
I don’t really know what I would’ve done had I known that they were here. Would I have hung out around the monkey temple to watch some guys eat a bowlful of crickets? Would I have been convinced to help the participants get around town? Are there any celebrities (like Rob and Amber – can I count them as celebrities? – like last year? If there are, would I have been one of those individuals who’d notice them and then say something dumb like “oh, you’re so and so… let me help you because you’re famous…?” Yeah, I don’t really know what I would’ve done had I known that the Amazing Race passed through town. But I am disappointed that I only just found out. I don’t know how ahead of time they film the show but I’m sure it was at some point in the last 9 months. Kind of disappointing that I can’t see the episode. Oh well.
They should’ve made them eat a bowlful of cockroaches. Or made them walk around the monkey temple several times with bags of food. 🙂 No… maybe that’s just cruel… Sorry.
Can anybody tell me how they left Lopburi? What kind of transportation?
