Where I stayed

Today I went to visit the temple of the Golden Buddha.  It was OK.  Apparently at first they thought it was just made of plaster and wax but during an accident some of the plaster came off and exposed the gold inside.  They used to cover giant golden expensive statues in the past to prevent them from getting stolen in times of invasion.  This statue is worth more money than any other religious relic in the world.

I'm still a little jet lagged so I took a nap in the afternoon to get right.  I think I'm good now.  Tomorrow I plan on to keep hitting the highlights of Bangkok.  It's a very busy, dirty, city with street stands everywhere selling DVDs, food, clothes, anything.  It is beautiful though.
