AMAZING BANGKOK

This is me below the national tree of Thailand, the Cassia fistula. At one time, we thought this was Pearl's Yellow Tree, but, no, it is the Cybistax donnell-sithii. No one here appears to know that the Cassia fistula is their national flower and tree. In fact, most thought that this tree did not grow in Bangkok.


Temple of the Emerald Buddha, my favorite temple for opulence. It just goes on and on.
Wat Arun (Temple of the Dawn), not enough gold and flash for me.






















Barbara and Ron Dixon.

Claudia Taden and Tuk-tuk. We formed a parade of tuk-tuks with a police escort.



Mark and Barb Kuhlmann near the Temple of the Reclining Buddha, Wat Pho.



Front of the Reclining Buddha.



















Back of Buddha.
