I have been keeping very busy while in Bangkok. Tried a new funky style on my nails.
Yesterday I was a tourist seeing some sights in Bangkok with my Thai friend Mod who I met while on my trip on Mongolia.
She took me down to the river, which was pretty high this time of year.
We visited a few temples to see the golden Buddha statutes.
This Buddha was discovered after the plaster was chipped away.
I learned there are three important items at each temple. Candles, incense, and marigold flowers.
We tried these tasty treats.
Delicious coconut light colored ones, along with the orange salmon ones.
It was interesting to watch this lady do a one woman show with carrying her supplies and then mixing them up.
We went to China town, and were able to see a parade to celebrate vegetarian week.
In the evening we toured the bustling flower market, to see aisles of marigold flowers.
Also lots of orchids.
Mod bought me some gardenias to enjoy for our last couple days here.
Today I was a tour guide as I showed a couple of Mark’s Mongolian co-workers around Bangkok. My first time going alone on the sky train, and I managed to show them 3 malls. I treated myself to some banana toast afterwards.
I have been so busy, that I am ready for a vacation.
