Part way back
Here I am sitting in the Tokyo Narita airport while Michael explores a bit. We are waiting for our connection to San Francisco in about 2 hours. So far so good.
Yesterday Cherry picked us up from the airport and off we went to Siam Paragon, the premier shopping mall in Bangkok. Michael wanted to see it and it is one of the wonders of the modern world. We had lunch in the food court which was impressively busy but extraordinarily organized as well. Then we got to visit one of my favorite stores, Jim Thompson to shop for silk and fine cloth. Michael seemed to think it was all worth it when we saw the Lotus, Porsche and Lamborghini dealerships on the 5th floor of the mall (8 floors all together). We drooled over (but did not touch) some of the cars for sale. They really do look like works of art.
Then we had a lovely dinner at the Eugenia Hotel with Cherry. It was a meal full of laughter and elegant dishes. A great way to end our trip.
See you soon!
