The next day Jon and I went with Matt and Sharon to the Bangkok Zoo. Sharon loves animals (possibly more than she loves Matt) but had never been to the zoo. We warned her that she'd probably find it depressing, but she wanted to see for herself. We spent the whole day there and had a wonderful time. I got to see more elephants. It was like any other zoo I've ever seen, save for the Red Panda and the WWII bomb shelter. (Still not sure why that was there).
I almost forgot to mention my run-in with Mussel-Yam. He was a professional Muay Thai kickboxer who'd just had a sex change. Just kidding. Yam is a variety of Thai salad, and mussels are shellfish. In fact, mussels are my favorite shellfish and I felt like trying some different Thai food. I ordered the dish and the restaurant owner looked at me like I was insane. I assumed he thought I wasn't used to shellfish, so I insisted. It turned out that Yam is some of the hottest food on the planet. My entire head turned beet red, and my nose ran like Niagara. But I finished the whole plate with the help of a few cold beers. My stomach hated me for the next few days. Just thought I'd pass that on in case any of you go out for Thai food.
