Almost home! Some heat at last and the chance to wear our teeshirts. We only had a couple of days in Bangkok. A couple of massages, some shopping, some temples, some very spicy Thai food and a long wait at the airport. Michael was so anxious to get home that he insisted we go to the airport at 2:00pm even though our flight didn't leave until midnight! We were both really looking forward to seeing Jendi and Jangles again.
