So long exciting Bangkok.........



View from our hotel room, the excellent JW Marriott in the city center.


We enjoyed the street vendors, but admit we didn't eat any 'street food', just in case!


We soon got the hang of how to use the spotlessly clean, fast, very inexpensive, Sky Train to hop on and off when we had time alone in the city.  The air conditioned rides helped temper the heat of the streets - and people were always helpful.


We had a lot of giggles when we caught sight of ourselves in the windows and recalled our days together almost 50 years ago when we did similar things in Washington, D.C. in our old life!!!!!

Lovely touch in our room, ice bucket with elephants.

Leaving this morning - flying to beautiful Chiang Mai in northern Thailand.  On the agenda there - more temples, rice paddies, elephants...and umbrellas, but no rain expected!!!
