Our second full day in Bangkok was a quintessential Thai tour: elephant riding, the favorite pad Thai (Thai fried noodles with vegetables, bean sprouts, peanuts and spice) of our van driver, and driving around the city. We wanted to see the Grand Palace, but the King was actually in that day! Instead, at the park across the street we cheered on at least 100 runners who were running laps for a 9-hour ultra-marathon -- in that heat, it was extremely commendable.
