September 28, 2008 Touring Bangkok

On Sunday we toured the Grand Palace and Wat Phra Kaeo (Temple of the Emerald Buddha). The team had a very hot and fun day. Many great pictures to share when we return. In the afternoon the team visited the Chatuchak market where there are many stalls of local merchants as well as larger stores. The team members had fun bargaining with the shop owners for the best price. "Mai dee Paeng Pai, Paeng Pai" means "Not good, to expensive, to expensive." Lunch was served on a very large boat on the Chao Phraya river. The food was excellent. One thing is for sure, the Lions Clubs and Health Ministry are taking good care of the team and no one is going hungry. We are very grateful to our hosts!
