Where's Waldo? Or "Where's the Phelans?" If you look closely you can see my sister and brother-in-law, Ryan and Terry Phelan, sitting in the stands.

My Dad arrived in Thailand on the 21st to join me for the remainder of my trip. We visited the Royal Palace and surrounding buildings in Bangkok. The blue "parachute" pants are not my Dad's, they are standard issue for any visitors wearing short pants. (Long skirts and shoulder-covering tops are also provided)
The best theater in the world, based on my experiences, was calling my name once again in Bangkok. My Dad, Steve, and I visited the Siam Paragon for some car shopping and movie watching. We treated ourselves to one of the 3 Nokia Ultra Screen Theaters where the screen is a high definition digital screen and the seats have electronic recline control as well as blankets and food/beverage service. The best was before we were seated as our movie tickets were our pass to the Ultra Lounge. There we sat in leather massage chairs for a 20 minute session and we passed on the available full bar service.

Software can be expensive... that is unless you are in Bangkok. In Panthip Plaza a pirated photoshop set, complete with manual, will run you about $5. (A savings of $644 USD)
