Bangkok 2010

I'm finally settled back into the more relaxed pace of home after the bustling trip to Bangkok.  It was so much fun!  The Chatuchuk weekend market has 15,000 stalls and is jammed packed full of everything you could imagine.  We saw more clothing, fabric, jewelry components, food, people, and goodies then we had ever imagined.  We had been warned about its size and that we needed phones to stay in contact with one another.  It was  no lie.  Getting sidetracked was simply too easy to not have a buddy plan.

The hotel was right on the river, and from the right room there was a terrific view.  We took the famous Tuk Tuks back and forth from the hotel to the market.  They are an essential part of the journey, but so stinky you want to wear a mask.

Thai silk is everywhere.  The colors are amazing, but perhaps most amazing is that its all hand woven. 
All in all, the trip was a huge success, amazing, fun, and inspiring.  I always love spending time with my friends, visiting new places, eating new foods, and shopping.  I bet you can't wait to see what we got...
