farang* only one day more...

The man and I have spent the last couple of days in Bangkok, and have now checked out of our hotel and will be heading to the airport soon to fly home.

We stayed in the heart of 'Siam' and visited the Royal Palace, Emerald Buddha, and the giant Reclining Buddha. We also tested our bargaining skills at Chutachuk Market...

I managed to grab a couple of books on Thai and SE Asia Textiles - I am inspired by Julie over at Samurai Knitter, and may try and do a bit of run-down of some of the textile traditions here.

Oh,.. and I can't wait to see Pierre again :)

*Farang is the Thai word for foreigner
