The Day after Christmas

After sleeping in today, we were off on an adventure! We went to Ancient Siam, which is a little ways outside of Bangkok. It was sooo much fun!

It's a park in the shape of Thailand, and it has every important place that's all across the country represented there. So, if you don't want to spend the time (or money) traveling all over Bangkok, you can just go there. We were there for about 3 hours and could have spent so much more time there, but at the same time, we were a little overwhelmed with all the cool stuff this place offered.
When we got there, we bought our tickets then hopped on the bikes that were included in the ticket price (300 Baht, which is about $8). First, we tried the tandem bikes, but they were set aside for regular, plain-old-fashioned bikes that worked just fine. (Note, Amy Ray, you have no idea how much I thought about you today. These bikes were very reminiscent of the ones in Tanzania!) The park is so big that it would take forever to walk around and see everything... so, people either ride bikes, drive golf-carts or regular cars. But the bikes were awesome for us. :)

I'm gonna post a ton of pictures, but the basic idea is that we had a BLAST! I'm so glad Jenna and MiMi are here because it gives us an excuse to get out and see the more touristy things. After all, we do live in Thailand!



(I'll post more pictures later, but I'm going to bed for now!)
