Grand View

Having lived in Bangkok now for seven years, some places in this city no longer seem as novel or as exotic to me as they once did. An exception to that is The Grand Palace and Wat Phra Kaew. When I see its white washed walls and glittering gold temple structures, I still get goosebumps. This was one of the very first places I visited when I arrived here and no matter how many times I go back, I never grow tired of the place. Even riding past it in a taxi is exhilarating.
