Day 9 - Visting Wat Pho, Temple of the Reclining Buddha.
As we were walking through the alley ways of Chinatown we ran caught a glimpse of the river through this long walk way... we took a small detour and walked to the riverside to watch the horizon swallow the sun... it was one of the more peaceful moments of my trip.
The Hospital in Bangkok
The Lonely Planet mentioned there was a Beatles cover band called "The Thai Beatles" that play at an Irish Pub every Friday night and I knew i had to see this. The Thai Beatles didn't cover Beatles songs in Thai it was a full on Coverband. They dressed, played and even spoke like The Beatles. The Thai John Lennon version even spoke like him and had his signature glasses. I think he may have been wearing a wig. ha! Here are some photos.

Day 10 - Chatuchak Weekend Market
This market was absolutely insane. If you've never suffered from claustrophobia, you'll definitely catch it walking the isles of this massive pentagon shaped death trap of commerce. Make sure you're hydrated and have red ruby shoes to click the heels of WHEN you get lost. ;-)
Next stop... Ayutthaya.
