Day 4: Bangkok
this was a busy day. started out with a boat ride down Chao Phraya to visit the Grand Palace with jeff, this guy who was staying at the same house as us. personally i thought it was amazing but jeff seemed underwhelmed. made me realize that i am mildly geeky for ancient artisanry.
took a tuk-tuk to thanon khao san, which is homebase for every dreadlocked european in asia. jeff loved the pad thai which personally i thought was the worst i've ever had. he asked me as we were getting ice cream, "is this authentic?" and in my head i'm all, "dude, look around what do you think?" but it was cool. can't beat 4 beers for $3.
later on we went and saw some traditional thai puppetry. it was cool and all, but actually no... it was pretty boring.
then we went to this noodle joint that ted's cousin said was "the best in bangkok, and therefore the best in thailand, and therefore the best in the world." right on the money. blew my mind. can't remember the name or the street but apparantly the cook is known as, "mistress of the wok." believe it.
