Live report ...part two

Hi all

Today ( Dec 28th) we were up and early ready to be pick up by nook ( our tour guide) and her driver. I wanted to show my son history if his heritage on both side Thai and Australian. I engaged with nook base on her review here on TA. I don't want to do it my own even though born and live half of my life here does not mean I know things or my way round the place. Master 15 also wants to see the train and floating market.

Off we went 7am first stop was train ( Mae Klong train market) to be honest it didn't excite me at all ( but you do for the love of your child). The rain was late but there are so much food and snack for me and my husband to try out ( master 15 just turn his nose up..horrible child)

After the train market we all went to Damon sadauk floating market. If you thing traffic in Bangkok is bad then this is worst than that. We had boat coming out from all directions all at once. Its was so hot and humid with fuming from the boat's motor ( they should be ban). We were opted for paddle boat. It was the first time for master 15 so it was quite the scene for him.

After the floating market we made our way to the cemetery, museum and the train over the river keaw. It was very moving ( I'd been once in high school) and sad. To every one that softie please take the tissues you will need one. I had a few ( ok more than a few) tears. I just can't help it even though I didn't know nor related to any of them.

It was a long day we don't get back until after 6pm this evening. The traffics was horrendous when we are approaching Bangkok.

So tonight is pizza from room service for us....

Thanks for reading...

Hi sweetpea,

Thanks for the update. The Floating Market has never really appealed to me. I haven't met anyone who hasn't been moved by their visit to the war cemetery in Kanchanaburi.

Regards, Andy.
