October 12, 2010 - Sailing out of Bangkok

By: Arturo Valdez

12:15 PM - Left Royal Thai Navy Minesweeper Squadron Base after 5 days of stay in Bangkok. Philippine Embassy staff headed by Ambassador L. Lacanlale have done great wonders to make our stay comfortable and memorable. We will proceed directly to Bacliew, Vietnam 720 kilometers away, skipping Cambodia because of bureaucratic problems in docking. Weather cloudy and drizzling.
