Bangkok, Thailand

Bangkok was a kaleidoscope of sights, sounds, color and flavor. The streets and alleys feel as twisted as the electrical lines. The city was alive with vibrant experiences and wonderful, happy people. So much more than a muddy old river or Reclining Buddha Рbut we did plenty of that, too. We took two cooking classes, one at the Oriental Mandarine Royal Thai Cooking School where we learned such finery as smoking the inside of a dessert bowl with a delicately scented culinary candle, and one with Silom Thai cooking school where we learned the true home cooked Thai cuisine, Bangkok style. Both helped us to bring some of that amazing flavor home.

During our days and nights in Bangkok we indulged in sky bars, the Grand Palace, Wat Pho (reclining Buddha), Wat Arun, danced all night at a local speakeasy, and hit the spa. It was truly a whirlwind, and one I would willingly repeat.
