Bangkok – Day 1 and 2

I am writing these a few days late due to a crazy schedule and spotty internet service. I’m not going to be terribly accurate about backdating but I’ll do my best.

Most of our Bangkok sightseeing so far has been around the Grand Palace – which was every bit as impressive as I remembered from my visit here ten years ago. We both thoroughly enjoyed the palace, though the heat was a bit oppressive.

We also found a tailor to make me a custom-made suit, which is somewhere between exciting and terrifying (because even though it’s very cheap for a custom tailor, it is still a lot of money spent on something without a good idea of what the result will be)

The only bad part was that we seem to have gotten somewhat ripped off by the TAT (official tourist travel agency, government licensed or whatever) – the guest house they booked for us in cambodia was not as advertised (no AC, dirty, etc)  and they charged us about five times its real price. We didn’t end up staying there and will contest the charges.
