We arrived late last night, 24 hours after taking off from JFK and 36 hours later NY time.

Jet lag wasn’t too bad because we were so exhausted from the flight that we just crashed upon arrival.

We spent today exploring the Grand Palace and several Wats (temples).

I am now fascinated with the Chakri dynasty which has ruled this country since 1782 and am looking for some good books to read on modern Thailand (post Ayutthaya). If anyone has any good suggestions, please leave them in the comments section.
