The Great Adventure of 2012 Begins!!!

I decided to go on a great adventure!  I really needed one.  I haven't been traveling like this for a very long time so I thought that I was due.  So, where else to go?  Back to SE Asia, duh.  So I made my plans and packed my bags and I was off.  I left Wisconsin on March 13, 2012 and arrived in Bangkok at about 12:30a.m. on March 15, 2012.  That trip is the worst part.  It is kind of horrible traveling for more than 24 hours.  But, that is the price I guess.  So I made it to Bangkok!!!  Only had two nights in Bangkok including the night I arrived.  So, really only one day.  I had been to Bangkok before and had a chance to see most of the sights.  So, I decided to hop on a river taxi and see some things that maybe I had not seen before.  Here are some photos of the Bangkok adventure.  Mostly I just went to Wat Arun, and I did go back to the Reclining Buddha, because it's pretty cool.  It was HOT!!!  I mean HOT!!!  It was 99 degrees with almost 100% humidity the day I ventured out.  I think maybe I'm the only one that sweats in Bangkok.  I was soaked from sweat.  I notice other people and nothing.  I wonder if I have a weird sweat problem?  Maybe.  But I spent the whole day exploring Bangkok again.  Sometimes I would get some water and a bag of mango's and sit in the shade.  That was nice.  I ended my day at a tiny restaurant on the river having a couple beers and some dinner.  I loved my dinner.  Anyway, here are some photos if you want to see them.  Next post, on to Luang Prabang, Laos!
