First in need to start off to say that you can't fool Google or Facebook. They know where you are at all times. When I login to Blogger, I am presented with a signin screen in Thai. Facebook asked me if I wanted to join their project to translate Facebook to Thai. If the Thai didn't have half their signs in the Latin alphabet as well as Thai, I'd be lost as I travel around.
The only word to use for the market is huge. There are stalls selling food, clothing, trinkets, and many other things. None selling anything I wanted except for food. I'll let the pictures tell the story better than I can. The spring rolls and watermelon shake is my lunch.

After that, I returned to the hotel and went to a nearby Thai restaurant for dinner. This was not as local as the one the night before. The night before, I was the only westerner in the restaurant. This night, the only Thais were the wait staff; all the diners were westerners, probably from the nearby Holiday Inn.

Need to sign off now as I'm going away from Bangkok to the Floating Market, which is a two hour bus trip away. More tommorrow.
