It was great fun and only slightly bizarre to meet up with my mom at the Bangkok hotel, and after crashing for a few hours' rest we were game to explore. We had only just stepped out of the hotel when a durian cart caught our eye.
This is Sam telling the woman that he wants just a little. (she gave him a lot)
I have always wanted to try durian but the smell has made me a little wary. The fruit was just fine, although I don't think any of us would put it at the top of our list.
Just down the next street was a woman freshly squeezing pomegranate juice...yes please.
Thailand is a feast for the senses.
I had (and still have) no idea what these were, but they looked like works of art.
And they were delicious.
We stopped at a temple and watched people making offerings of food to monks.
After a quick glimpse of Bangkok, it was time to get to the airport to head up north to Chiang Mai.
