So...

We are in Bangkok!

overcast 34 °C

We totally made it. This morning we had some pad thai & bacon, sunny-side-up eggs, fresh OJ and the richest, most delicious coffee ever for breakfast. Chris has already made the mistake of drinking water with ice in it. Yikes, maybe.

The weather here is pretty warm to say the least. 110 degrees heat index. Amy has seen many people wearing tank tops so far, but we have yet to leave the hotel. Last night a nice little man who stood out amongst a crowd of 100 taxi drivers who held a big sign with "Amy Antonio" on it. He took us outside to wait for his disco van - and while he retrieved it from the parking garage, we were exposed our first olfactory impression of Bangkok - a smell that resembled hot muggy fritos and fried rice.

Our hotel is awesomely great. Seriously. Check it out at www.reflections-thai.com. We are in room 210. You can look at each room. Kitch is the name of the game here. And we are happy as can be. Our room came with robes and slippers and thai TV that we watched into the wee hours of the morning.

We are off to explore wherever we are now. Going to try to take the skytrain somewhere and maybe a boat to the Grand Palace.

More soon - love to all...

Chris & Amy

Whee! the first to comment!

I couldn't help but look at every room picking out mentally which one I would want to stay in if I was there. I was impressed by many and not so much by a few. But to each their own!

Someday, I want to own one of those wooden teak soaking tubs and in my bedroom. SWEET!

Yeah, and don't forget--no ice cubes! as tempting as they are.
