We're closing out a great 2nd day in Bangkok. We visited the 'Grand Palace', had a delicious buffet lunch, took a boat cruise along the 'Chao Phraya River' through the heart of the city, fed fish and bought some durian, lychee, mangosteen and rambutan from a local river boat vendor to try. Later on, some of us had a two hour traditional Thai massage, others went souvenir shopping. We ended the evening with an authentic Thai meal, accompanied by music in a lovely restaurant overlooking the 'Chao Phraya River'. Tomorrow we have to get up very early to catch our flight to Sukhothai, where the elephant fun will begin!
