05/09/12 Saying Goodbye to South Asia! (Part 3) (Bangkok)
Our plans to be in America April 28 were changed abruptly when Richard was discovered to have another cancer while we were in Bangkok for a routine final check relating to his prostate cancer treatment (brachytherapy). Doctors tell us this cancer is unrelated to his prostate cancer. We are so thankful it was found and removed while in the early stages.
Richard’s medical delay resulted in our staying in Bangkok longer than expected. As he recovered from surgery, we found time to enjoy this lovely part of Thailand, before we return to America on May 10th!
We enjoyed visiting this international church twice. We have been accustomed to Holy Day being Friday for 3+ years, so it takes some adjustment to go to church on Sunday again!
Our friend Debbie visited us from Delhi and taught us to enjoy some of her favorite Korean foods.
We love Thai food. Richard manages chop sticks quite well!
We enjoyed learning about coconut trees and how brown sugar is made from the bloom of the coconut tree.
The wood craftsmanship was awesome!
How’s this for a rocking chair!
We visited the Floating Markets. Shops line both sides of the canals and the shoppers travel the canals by boat.
We enjoyed homemade coconut ice cream, served in tiny coconut shells.
A “must see” in Bangkok is the Grand Palace - a huge complex (54 acres) established in 1782.
Two of the palace guards were happy to pose for a picture.

Our last meal in Bangkok was at a Vietnamese restaurant.
The Sky Train is a wonderful way to travel!

Trust in the Lord with your heart,
And lean not on your own understanding;
In all your ways acknowledge Him,
And He shall direct your paths.
