In Bangkok, when you ask to go to the palace…

They know which one you mean.  Unlike Japan, where asking for the palace could land you at one of a hundred places (ok, not quite a hundred, but a lot), in Bangkok the taxi driver knows to take you to the Grand Palace.  And in this case, Grand is not an exaggeration.

We’re talking golden spires…


(And, yes, that women is purposefully photobombing our picture so that she can get a picture with the kids.)

Amazing mosaics…


Statues galore…


And so much architectural detail you could spend days there, and still not see it all.


This is by far one of the coolest places we’ve seen.  I think I’ve got a few more wish list items to add to my dream home.
