Downtown Bangkok (last one!)

 Here we are downtown Bangkok exiting off the SkyTrain. I don't know if we are in the heart of downtown.  What to see?  We don't see anything too touristy from the view above.

the sighting of a Starbucks!!!

multi tasking
 Look what we did discover though!  John had a great cup of decaf!
 Loved the color of the taxis....hey girls!
 Had to cross this street, we weaved in between the motor bikes.
I  didn't want to be out after dark so our stay wasn't very long. Up and back a few blocks.
 Our last meal back at the hotel.  They make everything look good and tastes wonderful too.
 A glimpse of the Himalayans from the air and we're off to Nepal.

It's a good thing we made it home that day because our travel agent had actually booked the return for the 10th, the day before.  Jet Airways didn't make a fuss and just put us on the days flight (the 11th).  We had to mentally prepare ourselves returning to Kathmandu; back to the noise, garbage, pollution; but good friends and people and actually being able to speak a little Nepali!!   Thailand by the ocean is a wonderful place to visit.  Wish you could of joined us.  God is good.

  1. Beautiful, it looks like you had a great time despite the language barrier. Who knows you may have been near my brothers......He can see the train from his balcony and there is a Starbucks right across from his apartment.
