The food is very good – our biggest challenge is figuring out what to order.

Went to Sunday morning service at the Evangelical Church of Bangkok with Randy and Kerri.  Their daughter and son-in-law, Jill and Kevin, are on staff.  Jill and Kevin have a sweet baby boy named Jeremiah.  The church is international, English speaking, and is experiencing more Thai attending services.

After church, we decided to be real tourists and took the Sky Train and a taxi to see Wat Pho and the Grand Palace.

At the Grand Palace, you have to be dressed appropriately – if you aren’t (my sleeveless blouse was inappropriate), you have to go to the dressing room and rent the appropriate clothing.  Before you leave, you return the clothing to get your money back.
