A few more pics from Bangkok

We are trying to catch up with our blog and have a few more treasures from Bangkok to post.

A Buddhist festival in Chinatown.

Our first night in Bangkok we arrived from the airport to find a huge Buddhist festival going on on the Chinatown streets all around our hotel. To our delight the festival involved eating all sorts of delicious treats and we ate dinner there two of our four nights in Bangkok. The first evening as we were staring hungrily at a noodle stall a kind lady ushered us to a table and helped us order..
Kind woman: White noodles or yellow?
Omar: One white, one yellow
Kind woman: Spicy or not spicy?
Omar: One spicy, one not spicy.
...and we were off on our SE Asia street food adventure. The evening ended with a little kid selling Omar "Thai Sweet." Here is Amy giving it a try :)
