Bangkok is a lot of things. Most of those things are hot, humid, moist, and smoggy, but there is a lot of good mixed in there. Phad Thai from street vendors ranks highly, and so do the huge number of Wats or Buddhist temples. The centerpiece of the city must be Wat Phra Kaew, next to the Grand Palace. This is a shot of the amazing golden Chedi. The jade Buddah housed in another building may hold more religious significance, but this is what I loved. More pictures to come, of course.
