A little fun in Bangkok, and then back to Ann Arbor

Two and a half days in Chittagong, long hours and lots of work, and much accomplished.  This photo shows the various adaptors and power cords in use–computers from Bangladesh, UK , and USA!  … and then the journey home began!  First stop Dhaka airport, where there are many Beautiful Bangladesh posters!From Dhaka, we flew to Bangkok, and took a personal day to sightsee.  As always, the sights and sounds and smells of Bangkok are enthralling!  Visited the grand palace, and here are some photos of some of the detail on the buildings/shrines.

This photo looks just like one of my favorite yoga pose, “goddess”

 

Took a longboat ride to the Grand Palace, and fed some fish at a designated spot for good luck.  Gave new meaning to the term “feeding frenzy”:

And of course, many fast food restaurants of the US type

 

Journey home was grueling.  I didn’t have nonstop from Tokyo to Detroit, rather Tokyo to LAX (which was more chaotic than usual due to extensive renovations) where I had a 6 hour layover.  Been home 6 days now, and still NOT sleeping at  night!  The upside of that is I’ve been cleaning drawers and closets in the middle of the night, and last night sorted through jewelery and went and sold all the broken, won’t ever wear stuff this morning!!

That’s it til next trip, which shouldn’t be for several months!
