Today we had to be fed, showered and packed by 10:30 and after last night it was a hard task.Stu's still not 100% and vows not to drink again on this trip...yeah right! We started the day off on a tail boat which was great. Only 5 of us and ma'am came because some of us have already done it We saw loads of cat fish that were been fed 'lucky bread' and we saw somedifferent ways of living. There were dogs everywhere and they looked very well fed. Apparently because they then eat them :-0 but we won't talk about that!!!! After he boat we went to the Grand Palace where the royals hold party's for things. Scarlett hadf to wear a jumper becuase girls can't show their shoulders there and she was boiling and we all had to wear long pants in 90 degrees!!! We saw the emerald buddah and got some really nice photos. All the buildings were decorated in mirrors which take about 2 years to do for each building. We got some fruit for dinner as we were all roasting and there's little stalls on the streets selling food etc. One was selling flowers, preserved by ice!! We then went to the market and ma'am went home. We had to buy cotton pants for our trek and Scarlett had to get a sarong because where we're staying for the next few days, we shower in the river but the girls can't show their bikinis...so pretty much you have to shower in clothes.
Tonight we're going on the over night train to Chiang Mai and staying with a hilltribe. There's alot mor trekking to do than expected but it's supposed to tbe beautiful! Anyway we've run out of time so we'll speak 2 u in a few days when we're back from the 'hills'! Love Stu and Scarlett xxxx
