This is a very hard post for me to write, but you have all been with me through many changes in my life, so I wanted to include in you what's next for me.  I will be taking some time off from the blog, in an effort to focus on my personal life.  I am going through some changes, and will need strength and support to get through the next few months.  Luckily, the people in my life have been unconditionally supportive and I can't say enough thank you's.

As soon as things start to calm down I will be back, and I hope for some new changes on my blog as well.. but we'll save that for later.  Thank you for reading and following along!  I will miss cooking for you and receiving your feedback, but this isn't goodbye.  See you again very soon friends.  Take care of each other and yourselves.

Bangkok Part IV

Today I have some pictures of the Grand Palace for you!  I have around 500 because it is a huge place, so I really cut down to show you my favorites.  The palace used to be the home of the king of Thailand, but he has since moved up and onward.  Now, it's a large tourist attraction as well as where guests of the king will stay when in town.
The "guards."
Some decorations around the grounds.
It's such a huge area with multiple buildings.  You can easily spend a whole day there.  If you're there heed my advice and don't go when it's 95 degrees F, you might feel like a melting puddle while walking around ;)
That night we went on a dinner cruise down the main river that goes through Bangkok.  As we were passing Wat Arun I snapped a picture.  Beautiful at night!
On our last full day in Bangkok, we made our way north of the city to the Chatuchak market.  It's a huge open market that sells pretty much anything you can imagine.  Jeans, purses, air conditioners, tea, or fake flowers!
This lady was pretty amazing to watch.  She carried these two baskets around that were filled with sushi and would sell to the many suppliers that were at the market that day.  

These are the last pictures of Bangkok, I hope you enjoyed seeing some pictures from my trip.  See you back here tomorrow for more food :)
