After his air-conditioned bus trip from his office to Don Mueang airport _ this was the time he had to jump off the bus in haste to switch to his limousine to avoid missing his flight _ the minister then had various adventures: Taking a bus, boarding a train, riding a bike, checking the ailing Airport Link service. He spoke to people on the ground _ the passengers _ to gain input. He shared his adventures on his Facebook page; his photos appeared in every newspaper.
