On January 17th we flew into Bangkok to join the Gap Tour group.
There are 12 of us on the tour. Singles and couples ranging in age from 25 to 65. Great group of people. Primarily Canadians which is quite unusual.
We visited the main temple and the Imperial Palace. Words cannot begin to describe the majesty of these complexes. There is marble, precious stone, mosaic, gold leaf and gold everywhere. Golden budhas that stand taller than the average person are numerous.
The people of Bangkok are devoted to their religion and to their king.
There is a floating city within Bangkok that is in many ways more spectacular than Venice which has its own distinct vibe.
The food has been amazing to date. Doubt that we will shed any lbs. while we are here.
