Winding down

After a whiz-bang tour of northern Thailand, courtesy of my wife’s cousin, we’ve got a week left here in Bangkok.  Man we saw it all, but one of my new favorite towns in Chiang Rai, a close cousin of Chiang Mai, where we spent the night.  Quiet and calm, it still has some “city-life” events, such as the night market, and a second-home to the stars who want to escape the crowds.

Any advice on what to see or do with time left in Bangkok?  We’ve done most of the major sites, but yesterday we visited the Jim Thompson house, a first for my wife and her sister.  Fantastic example of what a love of Thai architecture by an American architect can do. 

I just picked up some new glasses frames, Asian-style!  Got to get some lenses put in before leaving…the clock is ticking…
