Rivers, Temples and Kao San Road
That evening, D, Sky and I got back on the boats and headed up to Kao San Road, the traditional backpacker area of Bangkok. Our hostel is near a night market but I wanted to see the one here to compare (plus, backpackers make me laugh- I know, it's the pot calling the kettle black). We had a good time and did some good shopping before catching a cab back to our hostel.
Sorry folks, the pictures are out of order and I'm not going to hassle with fixing them. I'll try to make it make sense in the explanations.
Someone gave Sky this balloon for free and she figured out pretty quickly how to pull the string to hit Daddy in the head with it- that made her night!
But she wasn't very impressed by Kao San Road
Sky and Mama on a boat (turns out it was the wrong boat :) )
There we are again, on the right boat this time
Some more river views:
At Wat Pho, Sky with the Reclining Buddha's feet
There's the rest of the Buddha
Sky really liked these dog statues but she couldn't stay still long enough for me to get her picture with them!

Sky and Mama here
but not here.
These small stupas are for the common people's ashes to be interred in
and these big ones are for the king

And there we are again!
