Bangkok Time

We're having a great time in Bangkok, visiting temples, eating great street food (the sticky rice wrapped around banana pieces and chicken "drumlettes" on a stick have been a big hit so far), shopping for cool clothes, and even feeding turtles. One temple -- Pyongyang? I think -- had a pool around a small shrine. For 10 baht (about 33 cents) you got cut-up pieces of banana or meat and a long stick. You then could feed the snappers and red-ear sliders without fear. It was incredibly peaceful and entertaining -- even turtles get to eat their "street food" on a stick here.

Tomorrow evening we fly to Cambodia. Although I understand there are now ATMs there, tomorrow we are going to exchange a bunch of Thai baht for US dollars, which is a major currency in Cambodia.
