Along Thailand’s Chaophraya

Never have I had an illness that spanned three countries, but thank God for Boots pharmacy and my ability to purchase antibiotics without a prescription! Chicken broth and saltine crackers never tasted so good.

God is humorous. Had my first solid food experience in a while at Christ Church, walking distance from our hotel.

After much indoor confinement, we finally made it outside at night, for a dinner cruise along the Chaophraya river! Performers swayed to the rhythm in traditional garb, while others serenaded us in English, Thai, Spanish — you name it — from Backstreet Boys to Celine Dion. The buffet selection was decent, but the views of the waterfront palaces and temples at night were spectacular. Near the end, we even got glowsticks to play with!
