We flew Korean Air to Bangkok in 2009. It was a hastily-planned trip to see Kade's sister, who had been admitted into Yanhee Hospital due to a Lupus flare-up. I took these three photos from an upper floor viewing area/garden - a spot for families to get some sunshine and de-stress a bit.
And a bit on into the trip, after Kade's sister had been released from the hospital, one of Kade's friends drove us past the hospital on evening.

Kade gave me this clock as a birthday gift in 2000. She was working on in secretly, using a shop in the Victory Monument area of Bangkok. And I am pretty sure we were eating a bowl noodles (street food) when she surprised me with it. I then took it back to the USA a few days later, and shared it with everyone - photo one. I then brought it back to Bangkok and kept it my first apartment - photo two. Unfortunately, the Thailand heat ended up causing the paper backing to fade.

Last year, on our trip to Bangkok for my sister-in-law's funeral, the route we would take to the temple was via this huge roundabout named Wongwian Yai. In the middle was a huge monument to the warrior-turned-king, Taksin the Great. I took the footage (video one) of the monument as we drove by.

Kade wanted to catch up with some friends in Bangkok. A couple of them had some adorable kids.
Ping (L), Kim (R), 2005
At the cafe where Kade met up with Kim plus Ping & her boy, look at the heavenly crepe they ate, filled with ice cream, fruits and other toppings. Oh my! Notice the chocolate ready to pour. If you are a Westerner, and you live in or visit Bangkok, you can easily find high quality sweets you're familiar with. It's one of the things I love about the city!
