**edited to add pics


almost time to come home...

i am quite homesick and ready to be with my husband and doggies....

however, i now feel like i have not had enough time in Bangkok. I totally did not "really" see the city when we first arrived. I guess because we were just getting our bearings straight and everything...

yesterday and today however have been fantastic. Mom and I stayed out until about 2am last night, slept in a bit today and then made our way to the Grande Palace and visited a few Wats (temples)





we just took our time exploring little side streets and alleys, snapping pictures and taking it all in. Bangkok really is an amazing city. Yes, it is dirty and polluted, loud and crazy... but it has charm and character and so many wonderful sights and people.







mom was interviewed by some young teenage school children for a project. they asked her all types of questions about Thailand and her stay here. They asked what was one thing Thailand needed more of... Garbage Cans she answered. They agreed. We are always searching for a garbage at all the cities we have been to. It seems most just liter, however neither of us are comfortable doing that.

Tonight we are hoping to catch up with Karen and Lisa as they went off early this morning. One more final dinner together would be nice.

I am pretty sure i have broken the hotels computers trying to upload pics... they are now both crashing about every 5 minutes and it seems the problems began when i plugged in my camera... oops.... i did manage to load to one from our last night in Au Nong at sunset.

love.love.love!

Your comment about the trash cans makes me laugh. We thought the same thing when we were there and one of our local friends jokingly said...yeah...because they're afraid of bombs. I think a few years back, someone put a homemade bomb in a trash can in one of the busiest shopping area in Bangkok. It didn't hurt anyone but now they just don't like to have too many trash cans around.
