The Perfect First Day in Bangkok

After a LONG flight over, we had a nice relaxing first day in Bangkok.  We woke up to this view:

A bit hazy, but picturesque nonetheless.

After a breakfast of noodle soup (hello, Asia!), we walked around Lumphini park:

Where we met this guy:

As best as we can tell, they aren’t very dangerous.  But we got up and walked away shortly after this photo was taken…better safe than sorry (especially at the beginning of the trip).

We also wandered across this guy in the Chinese pavilion:

After that it was pool time where, once again, the view was pretty cool:

Then it was off to happy hour at the hotel and dinner at a nearby restaurant filled with locals (and for only $12 to boot!).  We couldn’t have asked for a better first day.
