Good weather -- 39-degrees "C" and gridlocked traffic

What was 39-degrees today, with 10-million people plus four more, thrives upon hot nourishment, hosts a national sport that is illegal in the USA, and has gridlock on the highways and side streets at rush hour?

I know you know --- Bangkok.

Catherine is loving this place. Exotic, romantic, great food, ice in our drinks again (but we are staying in a many star hotel).

We'll be at Thai Boxing tomorrow night. Going to a river-market in the AM.

The grad students headed out for the Hard Rock Cafe today and then the night art market. We needed some comfort time in our hotel.

Today we delivered baby gifts. That was a perfect activity after a long swim and a half-day tour of the palace, a temple and government elements. More on all of this later....

The river has a lot of traffic too.

Final pop quiz question:
What material is Emerald Budda made from?

Gold is a good guess, but not correct.

Try again....
