Finally Thailand

After a three day string of misadventures on my way to Thailand with my 82 year Mother we settled into our hotel in Bangkok for two nights cutting our stay there short by 3 days. 

One missed and one canceled flight, two hotel stays at LAX, a taxi ride that ended with the hatch opening and all our luggage flying out at 30 miles per hour, lost luggage and might I say lots of irritable people: we finally landed in Bangkok at 1:30 am.  We did a fast forward in Bangkok and hit Chiang Mai, Thailand in the north yesterday and I must say have not caught up yet. Between lost time, jet lag the need to find fabulous things quickly I am going to spare you the words and share some of our shopping and food experiences in Bangkok. More about fantastic Chiang Mai to come.
