Thailand Day 2: Oh the Things You'll See

"Want some snake whiskey?"

"....ummm, what's snake whiskey?"

"You want?"

"I mean well, sure, but...what is it?"

Out travel agent, who told us her name was Helley...Helley Kopter (cue courtesy laugh here), puts this giant bottle of whiskey on the desk in front of us. We weren't expecting this:

Now, I've never tasted snake before...but seriously, this tasted like SNAKE whiskey. Nasty.

Back in our Tuk-tuk for the Thai version of Mr. Toad's Wild Ride.

I just don't understand. This would never work over here. Scooters were EVERYWHERE. This line alone had about another 20 bikes behind it.

I wish I had gotten a picture of the families of 4 or even 5 riding on these bad boys (love the manly pinkness), but this'll do.

Standing Buddha. This thing is MASSIVE. I couldn't get the whole thing in the frame.

Our last stop before heading to the tailors, was Golden Mountain. Not very Golden, but at the top of the stairs had a great view of Bangkok. This city just goes on and on and on and on.

Our Tuktuk driver with a big ol' smile on his face because of the suits we bought.

I just don't even know what to say to all of this! What world travelers! I don't think I'm brave enough to do something like that. Maybe. Really cool.
