Day 41 - Laem Chabang (Bangkok)

We stayed overnight here last night so anyone who wanted to could spend more time exploring Bangkok.  We had no plans for today and I'm glad.  Looking out our balcony this morning we saw a thick blanket of smog covering the area around the port. 

Local merchants had a market set up in a large room in the cruise terminal, so we decided to spend some time this morning shopping there.  They had a nice collection of silk and hand embroidered clothing, wood carved objects, as well as an assortment of local souvenirs.   I found 2 lovely silk tops, an embroidered t-shirt, and a ceramic elephant wall hanging that will look great on our patio wall.
No photos today.  We watched a movie in our room this afternoon and enjoyed a lovely diner in the main ship restaurant tonight.  We sailed out of port a little after 4pm tonight.  During diner we noticed a lot of green and white lights out the window.  There are a lot of fishing boats in the Gulf of Thailand tonight.  I'm not used to seeing that many other boats so close to our ship.

Tomorrow is another sea day as we head towards Saigon.
