On Thursday we walked down to get Russ and Fred's tailor made suits. On the way we stopped at a Technology Mall. OMG. It was electronic heaven. Four floors jam packed with shops selling everything imaginable for fulfilling your electronic needs (or shoud I say wants), all at rock bottom prices (almost as good as Ebay). It's a good thing that I have no room left in my luggage for anything more, it was very tempting.
In the evening we attended a tradional Thai puppet play. I was very impressed. All of the puppets and their costumes are hand made.The art of puppetry almost died out here, but was revived by a few dedicated folks.
On Friday we traveled via river taxi one last time to tour the National Museum of Bangkok. It was filled with Thai history, art history, archeology, etc. The most impressive exhibit was the one on funeral "chariots" used to transport royalty during their funeral processions. Unfortunately no pictures were allowed.
We will be meeting a friend of Fred's tonight for dinner on our last night here.
Can't wait to see everyone. Not looking forward to shoveling though.
