Day two part two: After the baby's home, we visited the Grand palace. We paid the money (about $10) for a private tour that lasted one hour. Our guide was very knowledgeable about Thai history. It made the visit much more interesting! The exchange rate is really working in our favor. I feel sorry for Thailand. Last time we were here two years ago the Thai baht was 30 to one Euro. Now it is 50TB to one Euro! We started the day pretty energetic, but jetlag is setting in. We have to force ourselves to stay awake for 6 more hours! The boys are very loud and wired. They seem to get louder when they are unsure of themselves. I think they need time to process the visit to the orphanage. Tomorrow we get to tour the floating market and the crocodile farm. It is also Thomas's 9th birthday.
