Saying goodbye to Istanbul, we said hello to Bangkok following a 9 hour plane trip. The time differences now are12 hours ahead of the time on the East coast of the U.S. As the following pictures demonstrate, our "apartment" in the Adelphi Grande hotel (every apartment in Bangkok, listed on VRBO appeared to be located in hotels) is quite comfortable. The folks here so far have been extremely polite and very helpful. We are also trying to learn a few Thai phrases. Although only a small area near the hotel has been explored we have already found a pretty good supermarket just a short walk away. Once we have explored more of Bangkok, we will make another blog posting.
