We came in at 2am last night (10am US) and got little sleep, but finally being in Bangkok is so exciting that we're not tired yet. This morning we had a 3 hour bus tour of several wats in the city. They are amazing in their detail, and the obvious cultural devotion to their deities and king. Now we're lunching at a cafe on Silom Road, and taking the air conditioned sky train to the air conditioned MBK shopping center for the hottest part of the afternoon. It's definitely hot! We can only stand to be out for about an hour before retreating to air conditioned quarters. Tomorrow we'll take a day tour outside the city to the famous floating market. Nathan is actually enjoying himself, and has designated himself trip photographer, so prepare yourself for our full memory card capacity of pictures! We've also made friends among some of the (half dozen) younger people on the trip, and I kind of became impromptu guide for our afternoon excursion to the MBK/Siam Center. All that TripAdvisor came in handy!
