Finally, we arrived in Bangkok. We took a tuk-tuk, which is a three-wheeled taxi with a long seat in the back that can hold two people and one seat in the front, which is in the middle of the tuk-tuk, for the driver. It dropped Keegan off at his Muay Thai match and me at the floating market.
At the floating market I was looking at some particularly interesting looking fruits, which are called the mangosteen, and I was taking such a good look at them that I leaned a little to far over... and you know what happened then? I fell into the canal!!! A few mangosteens went over, too. But, the people just ignored me and kept selling their food and flowers and other random stuff. I barely got a hand on the plank of the boardwalk. I hoisted myself up and all was okay - right then, anyway.
I got a few of the mangosteens, and they were really good. I think they're my favorite fruit now. Well, at least I bought ten pounds of them to last me a while.
Then, I went to see the Reclining Buddha. It was ENORMOUS! I was about one-toe high. The statue is 49 feet high and 150 feet long. Now that's what I call big! I just had to touch it. I looked around. Nobody was looking. Of course, there were cameras in the corners of the building, but I reached out, and I touched the enormous toe. I quickly walked away and acted like I hadn't done a thing.
I went back to pick up Keegan in a tuk-tuk. Have a good time, everyone!
