A woman chopping up chicken, and lots of fresh local produce and meats of all kinds in the market this morning.

Wat Pho is the oldest and largest temple in Bangkok, dating back to the 16th century. It houses Thailand's largest reclining Buddha, measuring 46m long and 15m high. The figure's toes has mother-of-pearl inlay in various patterns.
Today we explored the grounds of the Grand Palace, the former Royal residence. This is truly one of the most beautiful places we've ever visited. The architecture is incredible and the (real) gold on the buildings shimmers in the sun.
The Chatuchak Market is one of the world's largest weekend markets. It sprawls over 27 acres and has over 15,000 stalls. There's everything from crafts to antiques to housewares to clothes to pets, etc. We even saw miniature bunnies in dresses(?!?). We were completely lost in the maze of stalls for most of the day but thoroughly entertained.
