The one hiccup on the trip was Max having a 102 – 103 fever for three nights. We actually took him to the hospital on the fourth day (the Phuket Bangkok hospital being the nicest hospital we have ever seen) but fortunately by then the fever broke. He seems to have started a pattern with getting sick on holidays.
It felt much hotter and humid in Bangkok and that first afternoon Rich and I left Max with a sitter in the hotel play room. We took the river taxi up to Chinatown and wandered through small alleyways lined with stalls selling foods, textiles and other completely random stuff. Rich sampled some street vendor spring rolls for which he paid a small additional price for the next day.
