Saturday’s scene: Sitting on a Golden Throne

In Bangkok’s Grand Palace, Buddha sits on a golden throne surrounded by semi-precious jewels that glitter in the afternoon sun. Alan and I discovered this grand scene on an overnight cruise excursion to Bangkok, Thailand while on a 52-day cruise from Seward to Singapore on Regent Seven Seas Mariner. Boomer tip: be prepared for humidity! We were soaked with perspiration after touring the elaborate buildings, but the experience was worth it.​
