Friday; August 7th

So today we explored Bangkok some more, and hit our old stomping grounds! We took the water taxi around to the Museum Siam where we picked up a watch for mom and dad each. Mom got one with a bunch of little “Changs” (elephants) which are adorable!

After that we took to the Mandarin Oriental; once the #1 hotel in the world, and it’s charm and beauty is still there. And we had to….take a selfie in the mirror because 3 years ago we did the same thing. It’s a tradition!

After that we went off to Jim Thompson’s, a staple of our trip! I ended up getting a tee-shirt, a make up bag, and of course some little notes!

We met Uncle Bill again and had lunch at a wonderful little place called Harmonique; granted I lost all feeling in my mouth due to the spice, but it was a wonderful lunch besides that!

After that we took the water taxi back to our local area, Rambuttri Village and took the rest of the evening easy since we had an early wake up at 4 am for a 7:45 flight out of Don Mueang on Asia Air.

But leave it to that night there being, what sounded like a marching band, to perform right down the street from our hotel keeping us up for many hours. Eventually we fell asleep, but on the positive note; we had napped earlier in the day so we survived with less sleep than most nights.
