Magical Moment 626, "Thailand - The Leftovers!"


Well, it's been a busy couple of weeks! Since my last post, I have made a trip home to Nebraska, quit my jobs, and moved with Eddie to southern Georgia! We are here temporarily until Eddie completes a training course. While he is hard at work with training, I am exploring the music scene down here and have high hopes for our 7 month stay. :) So, I apologize for not getting around to as many posts as I wanted.

I wanted to finish up sharing about our Thailand trip with some "leftovers." These are pictures I wanted to share that made me smile, that really didn't fit into any other category of religion, elephants, etc.

On our plane ride to Bangkok, I excitedly read the electronic tour guide on my airplane screen. I was a little bummed to find out that at a little over 5'8, I may have trouble with the shopping.... "Unless you are a tall western woman." Hmmm.

One late night, our exhaustion forced us to have pizza delivered to our hotel room. It came with no less than 16 packets of ketchup...apparently a local necessity!

In Thailand, the action of putting your hands together and bowing slightly is done with pretty much every hello, goodbye, and thank you. Many statues and religious symbols are show doing this. 

And so is Ronald McDonald.

 Dogs and cats (most of them stray) fill the streets of Bangkok. This one didn't budge as we stepped right over him twice on our way in and out of this 7/11.

I've never seen such a graphic restroom sign!

And finally, I really got a kick out of this one. How would you like a spa day where tiny fish nibble all the dead skin from your feet? I passed on that one. :)
