Briefly Back in Bangkok

Jen and I are back in Bangkok for about 36 hours in route between Bali and Hong Kong. We have had a much more enjoyable experience this time and have found the city quite charming. Third time's a charm, I guess.

Today we went to an aquarium here that rivals the Shedd Aquarium in Chicago. It has a huge tank with about 50 sharks swimming around (along with about 200K small other fish swimming much faster) and featured large glass walkways where you could walk underneath the swimming beasts. Plus, we found the best mexican food we have had in all of Asia at a mall in a food court. Don't worry, we ate there for two meals. I think we can make it till we get home now.

We spent the rest of the day running errands, which mainly consisted of picking up the clothes that we ordered from a tailor last week. I say "we" with a slight reluctance, since although I would love to say that it was Jen who bought all the clothes, it turns out they were all mine. Which really means that the most exciting and challenging adventure of our relationship will be when we get home. It will be called, "will Jen cede closet space to Dan for all the new clothes he bought in Asia?" We're gonna sell tickets and popcorn to that one.

As we were flying from Bali to Kuala Lumpur yesterday we saw this volcano erupting somewhere in the South Pacific/Indian Ocean (not sure which).
