Bangkok - shopping and eating!

Our first day in Bangkok we hit the street running... I mean shopping... we barely had enough time to drop our bags off at the hotel (and we had to bc we had to make room for our shopping bags) before we headed to the day market (forgot the name)... wow... the craziest thing I have ever been too and I had gone shopping in Beijing at the local markets... wow... you could buy plates to buying ducks (real ducks)... and you talk about alot of people but a great time... we stayed for about 6 hours and we had to leave bc we did not have any more room for bags and our feet were tired...

A bouquet of flowers made out of Thai money (baht).

For dinner the first night we ate at the hotel (not good) but I had to take a picture of the dessert of choice on the menu... Ice Cream (2 balls).

The next day we headed to Silam Village... a nicer boutique area... more expensive but air conditioned... HE HE HE

The last day we headed to the Jim Thompson Museum... beautiful.

This beautiful carved piece of word is a measuring device they used to measure silk... wow.
It was a great trip... good food... good shopping.. with some great friends...
