I doubt our pictures can adequately capture the opulence of Thailand’s Grand Palace. I am really enjoying Thailand. The food is interesting, particularly how the Thais have mastered the balance of sweet and spicy. The people are warm and friendly. The absence of cigarette smoke and loud, obnoxious public spitting here in Thailand is refreshing after almost a month in China. We’re flying tomorrow to Kathmandu, Nepal, where we’ll spend a week and move on to India. After about a month in India, we’ll return here to Thailand to explore more of the country.
