Note: These photos were taken yesterday. Just to clear that up. Yeah.
What's Lovely for Friday, May 28, 2010: Going to a legit floating market (I apparently went to a "fake one" earlier in this trip) and actually floating in a boat and stuff. Like a Thai Venice. Or perhaps Venice is the Thai Floating Market, I'm pretty sure they've been afloat for longer. But don't quote me on that, the non-history major.
This was my point of view from where I was eating a scrumptious lunch of kale and pork. That's totally not in the picture, but I figured I'd keep you informed.
It was kinda hard to balance a coconut ice cream (in a coconut shell bowl!) while not rocking the boat, not rocking the boat, baby.
This will be the first of many photos I took of "people rowing in front of us" while on our route around the market. The perks of sitting in front, right?
What I marveled at was each shopkeeper's remarkable sense of balance.
Waterlogged traffic jam? I say yes.
Another amazing thing about Thailand: I can almost never identify what native fruit I see in front of me.
Once we turned around the river bend (subtle Pocahontas reference there), it suddenly became a very quiet place, since we arrived early in the afternoon and missed the busy morning business.
I've seen a forest of trees, but of coconut trees? Nice.
Don't ask me what's on that man's face, I have nooo idea myself.
What's Lovely for today, May 29, 2010: Dancing like a fool to Hall and Oates' "You Make My Dreams Come True."
I wish I could tell you where Pink got her clothes, but... I think a roughly accurate guesstimation is: from various marketplaces and shops in Thailand for all of them.
I apologize for the wonky expression, or lack thereof, on my face. I apparently forgot how to properly smile.
I was eager to try out denim and lace together after I saw a girl wearing an all-jean/chambray outfit with lace tights.

We found these amazing sunglasses whilst browsing the outdoor markets at Siam Square. It's a good look for her, no?
