July 2 We flew from Singapore to Bangkok. Our airbnb was on the 13th floor - actually is was on 12A. The Thai’s are superstitious as are many other Asian countries. We frequent the Siam Paragon Mall for restaurants and for the Gourmet Market. I remember this market back in 2012. It has grown 1000% and the overwhelming majority of shoppers are Thai. They have everything I want in a grocery store!
July 5 Our house sit of two cats commenced in the district of Sathorn, a suburb of Bangkok. We met the owners back in April so the transition was a piece of cake.
July 14 After several visits to the BNH Hospital (physical which included an eye exam) we made our way to the Suan Park. It was a lovely park but empty!
July 15 We walked to Lumpini Park early in the morning and discover a park full of people getting their exercise. Along the way we found the Aesop’s restaurant. We did enjoy an evening meal which included hummus, tzatziki and kebobs.
July 17 On our way to the western style grocery store, Tops, we always pass this Chinese temple. We finally remembered to take our camera!
July 21 We rode the Chao Praya Express boat 2 stops beyond the Grand Palace stop to the Thonburi Railway market. We were actually looking for a walkway along the canal but that was a bust. The market was full of junk but we did find a shop selling shredded coconut so all was not lost. On the way home we stopped to eat at Mango Tree on the river. We then walked to the flower market. I found a bunch of long stemmed flowers and an arm full of cut orchids for cheap. The orchids lasted 2 weeks!
