Waiting for ferry the whole single journey is 50 cents each way

River full of floating weeds

No! we have eaten frog yeasterday but I certainly wasn't going to order it
View out to river
Dinner is served Gnoong tom and Spicy crab salad plus rice and 2 cokes  $12.00.........The thai's think this is overpriced. the food was very nice until the chillis hit
Small and free and worth about 20mins
WE tried to get a cab driver to drive us around the perimeter but  with no english we gave up and still had trouble conveying to him we wanted the ferry
The rickshaw riders kept asking us to get in, most of them looked so frail we felt they would have to get in the back while we pedalled

Wow is this place bizarre, there were siamese twins in bottles next to all manner of birth defects, Autopsy photos of murder, car accident, explosions and any other form of dying you could think of...there were stuffed execution bodies( that saved a funeral) as I said it was bizarre and onlt $1.10 entrance fee
Although it does have what could be the Grand Palace in the background
There would have been only enough life jackets for half of these but we had our eye and foot on the two we might have needed
We were going to night markets but Jan has dropped off to sleep while I did this so who knows

This trip should be called a day where the cab drivers dont speak any english, WE jumped in a cab in Thon buri and wanted to go to a museum, it tokk 10 mins to get him toa sk someone where it was and by that time we going in the opposite direction, anyway we got ther and it onlly cost $3.00 and an extra 30mins.
The place was so far from english speakers that 3 cabs drove off as soon as they saw we were round eyes but we finally got to the ferry
