today is our fist official day in bangkok. we walk around for a bit and i think we take the metro.. then we take the bus to the old part of town and walk the rest of the way. we walk through some markets and get lost along the docks.. but after more walking we find ourselves infront of the palace.. a helpful guys approached us (i shouldve known it was a scam to begin with.. no ones that helpful) he says today is the president birthday or someshit like that.. and that the tuktuks are free.. so he finds us a tuktuk and we hop on.. the driver takes us to a few temples which was nice but he also kept taking us to all these tailor shops and travel places.. each time he would get a gasoline coupon!! i actually bought a suit jacket which i havent worn in a while.
i also saw the leaning budha!! it was incredible.. i distinctly remember i was mad at someone at this point.. forgot why..
