There... St Louis Hospital... this must be the church.
Cool church. Nice looking. Cool interior. Kinda big too. Ok, I admit it, I arrived 20 mins late. But mass has not yet start, so I waited around. Then about 10 mins later, I noticed that everyone else in the church was THAI! Yeap, no farangs (white people) around. Hmm… strange. So I asked someone there, and then he said there wasn’t any English mass here! So I asked him where else have, but his English was bad and I could not make out what he was saying. So I asked him to write it down….
... here ...
This time, not wanting to be late, I started my journey to this church at 4.30pm, one hour before mass. This was what happened:
- I showed the note to the ticket person in the BTS line and asked “how to go here?”. At first he said something in Thai. Then realising I dont understand Thai, he gave me a map and pointed to the station I’m supposed to go to. One station away. Easy.
- Arrived at the station and asked the ticket person (again, by showing the note). He pointed towards the right exit. No, he didn’t know how to explain which way I should turn after exiting.
- Saw a policeman at one of the junction near the exit. So I thought he’ll be the best person to ask. I showed the note again. He replied something vague… all I heard was “…wait… bicycle…”. I realized he was pointing to the few motorbike taxis waiting at the corner, and he directed one of them to come. So I hopped on it (although I really wanted to walk), and finally, I arrived!
The Holy Redeemer Church!
