The day i met my cousin...

(day 2)

sunny 34 °C

Unfortunately no floating markets as there an hour outside of bangkok and we were too busy walking around the grand palace.. it sounds grand but its not the word i would choose to use its massive! Everything was covered in gold and mirrors and was blessing our ears with the chimes attached to the roofs. Apparently warding off evil spirits. Then as we went round we walked into this temple which had this massive shrine and then a tiny emerald buddha which looked a bit like me... apparently its good luck so i'm happy with that! although he may have been richer as he was wearing some kind of gold bling i was happy we had been reunited again. But seriously it was so peaceful inside. A very well kept man! As we walked out of the temple some local monks were burning candles and incense which was extremely nice change compared to what we have been used to in the rest of the city! When we left the temples we came across a real locals food market by the river but i refrained myself from indulging in any of the local delicatessens... i think i can be forgiven for that!
After a massive traffic jam back from booking our train tickets for tomorrow at bangkoks railway station we freshened up and eat a very enjoyable although extremely spicy thai curry. (glenn you would be proud of char!) Just got back from the koh san road.. ready for ANOTHER early start tomorrow. Loving every second of it.

Lots of love

Mike and dont worry char is sitting next to me too!!
