Bangkok Photos!

On Saturday, we took this boat to the market. It's a quick way to get from one end of the city to the other. I tried to take some pics while on the boat but none of them turned out because the water was really choppy. I was feeling a bit woozy by the time we reached shore.
Just behind the ladies in this pic is a Tuk-Tuk. It's a super-cheap alternative to a taxi. Insanely dangerous, but fun. It's like a motorcycle with an old bench seat attached to the back. They fly around the city in crazy traffic.
This is a shot from a temple high on a hill. The city is looks similar to Taipei from a distance.
An old temple. These building are about 400 years old. This temple was built for women. It was once a place for women to come and meditate.
