The largest reclining Buddha in Thailand is in Bangkok in a temple called Wat Pho. I think it is about 15 m tall and 46 m long. Don't you think it would look nice in my living room?
After our boat tour of a canal and Wat Pho, Ian, David, Cloe, and I had lunch at a small restaurant across from the Grand Palace. Having seen enough of shiny gold temples, David and Cloe decided to take a boat taxi back to the hotel, while Ian and I opted to tour the Grand Palace.
We knew before coming that we would have to wear shirts with sleeves and pants below the knee. I only brought one pair of jeans. They are the only jeans I own, so if you've seen me wearing jeans in the last year and a half, you know which ones they are. They have exactly three holes in them.
Can you guess where this is leading?
As we entered the Grand Palace grounds I noticed a group of Europeans wearing what looked like long traditional Thai skirts and some Thai pants. I told Ian that if I ever bought pants like that he needed to shoot me. What? Do these people think they look Thai?
About 10 steps later a uniformed security guard came up to me and announced that my pants were broken. He pointed at the fashionably placed holes.
He sent me back to the entrance where I traded my CNMI driver's license for a pair of the previously mentioned Thai pants.
Don't I look sexy?
We are off to Chiang Mai in about an hour. We are taking an overnight train and should be there at about 7 AM. From this point on I don't know what the Internet access will be like.
I may update; I may not.
Either way, Happy Birthday to me! I'll be 29 tomorrow.
