We are dressed up cause it's the respectful thing to do. Others are much dumber than us.

Wat means Temple.

That's what these things are called. That's how they do it in Thailand.

I think we're at the Grand Palace. Those golden things protect the place. I named all of them.

Didn't really get any great pics of this. There were hordes of people and they were all annoying. Besides I bought a postcard for pennies that beat any pic I could take.

Read the sign to figure out where we are. I don't remember. It was up on a big hill and gave a great view of the city (what you could see through the smog)

This thing was very cool and the gold is actually that bright. It's not from the flash. Lots of hours these folks spend on this stuff

These are some amazing photos:) That hotel room doesn't look bad at all and kinda looks like a studio apt. here in the states. It's good to read that you guys are enjoying yourselves and taking in all the spectacular sights.

It looks kinda like escape from ny and big trouble in little china with a dash of 12th century mongolian art. Find a monkey anywhere please and befriend it for me. Much love from NY.
