Bangkok September 23 & 24
We got in last night to the Eugenia Hotel right about midnight. Settled in after a nice shower and tried to sleep. That didn't work so well with the jet lag. Still we were up early and had a lovely breakfast before meeting Cherry and Dew, two of the International Reps from Disney's Animal Kingdom, for a day at the floating market outside of Bangkok. We had a great time trying lots of different and pretty spicy food for lunch while we sat alongside the canal and watched the vendors in boats ply their wares.
On the way back we stopped at a temple that has been covered by a large banyan fig tree. It was amazing to see how the tree has taken over the structure. What a fun first day in Thailand!
Blessings to all of you,
