Bold Bangkok

Scott - So, Bangkok hit me like a moped should have. The streets are chaos! However, its probably nothing compared to Vietnam and other countries. Today was amazing, we took a boat ride all the way up river from pier to pier. It seems the days need chapters because so much is happening and thats why travelling like this is so amazing. The experience is chop full! After the boat we were convinced to take a tuk tuk ride to some of the respectful buddhist sites such as the big ass standing Buddah. Only 10 baht.. how could we refuse? It was pretty cool but the ride itself to the different spots was an adventure in itself. The tuk tuk driver took us to a tailor shop.. for no apparant reason. We sat down, were shown some suite styles, and curiously asked, "do you even wear suites?" We laughed and the indian tailor said "I believe your driver is waiting for you." Ploy. Anyways, we got to Koh Sahn road and it was intense, so many things going on at once, so we are decided to move over to the area to stay tommorow, should be fun!
