7 hours ago Bangkok- Wat Pho - Reclining Buddha [by PelicanPirate]
First slsightseeing stop is Wat Pho temple and it is impressive set of beautifully tiled buildings in which one holds the Reclining Buddha which is absolutely stunning and is a must see if ever in Bangkok.

50 Thai Baht admission to whole complex which is about 62 cents US and includes a bottle of cold water.

Have to have legs and ahoulders covered and take shoes off.

Supposedly no photos at temples but 90% of people taking lots of photos.

Took a cab here from hotel. Cabbie charging 300 baht an hour to drive around and wait at the sights. About $10/hour for a nice air conditioned taxi. Worth every penny.

Yesterday at 08:12 PM Cooper Island - to Boaty ball or not to Boaty ball? [by NolaJag]
We’re heading out on our charter tomorrow and I’m wondering, do we really need to get up at the crack of dawn and try to get a Boaty ball? I assume Cooper has other non-Boaty balls? What about the other islands? Thanks!

Yesterday at 12:51 PM The end of our trip [by RogerAndBeth]
The final days hanging out at Club O with all of our friends. It was great as usual. Staying at our villa in OV with our own private pool will have to be a staple of every trip in the future. We got really spoiled. We got to see the fireworks right from our villa. We were about 100 yards directly behind KKO. The eating lineup for the remainder of the days was as follows:

Lunch: Bikini, 4.75 stars
Dinner: Le Piment, 5 stars
Lunch: Perch Lite, 4.5 stars
Dinner: Le Teleagraph, 5 stars
Lunch: CODA, 5 stars (the best lunch we had all week)
Dinner: Le Piment, 5 stars
Lunch: Perch Lite, 4.75 stars (we were told that the previous chef from Papagayo is now working there)
Dinner: L'Atelier, 5 stars (My FB post is below. It is public so it should work.)

L'Atelier

We hung out at the pool before heading to the airport. Fortunately, I brought Kenny's new car back in the same condition as when we left.

Getting to Charlotte was no problem. Our 10:30PM flight to CLE didn't leave till 1:30AM. Arrive at our house at 3:00AM. Till next year.

Yesterday at 02:57 AM Carrefour Market offering great Euro to USD exchange rate [by wilsonck]
Carrefour market posted on their facebook page that they are offering 1 ‎€ = 1.25 US$. This is a great exchange, so anyone on island might want to go to an ATM and withdraw Euros as the bank rate is 1 ‎€ = 1.12 US$ and then use those Euros to shop at Carrefour. They did not say how long they are offering this exchange.

07/19/2019 08:35 PM Beware: chicago Ohare Terminal 5 M concourse [by PelicanPirate]
So, on our way to Asia we get shifted from United to Asiana due to ORD getting whacked by thunderstorms. The shift only causes a 12 hour delay vice a total reset for the next day. All airlines international flights go out of Term 5 except United.

So that means you get to isit what TSA agent calls “the island”, terminal 5. Terminal 5 is IMPOSSIBLE to walk to from the other terminals. The ATS train either doesn’t exist yet or is totally broken and out of service. But all the signs are up telling you to follow this way and that way to get to Terminal 5. After being fooled twice to find boarded up ATS stations, and wasting almost hour, someone says you have to take a bus from this door at term 2. Guess what no buses from any Terminal after 9pm from anywhere but Term 3. We find that out by leaving term 2 after a huge wait to get a cab at term 3 and there is a bus. Driver says after 9pm,term 3 only pickup.

In years past I flew United and connected with little pain between Concourses B and C.

But if you have to go to M gates in terminal 5 with a short connection, forget it.

Ohare is a Major embarassment from major city. It wouldnt take a few smart people to make some clear signs to at least inform the mess an unfamiliar traveller is being faced with. A handicap traveller, forget it. No one at a United or American counter had a clue how to get to Terminal 5. They just gave the lazy american who cares shrug.

Thanks to the bus driver that showed up we are now in Asia. We almost took a cab from Term 2 to Term 5. Im sure the cabbie wiuld have been thrilled.

As for Asiana, the most professional and efficient ground and cabin crew ever experience for the second time after flying in 2014. These people take their job seriously and it shows.

07/19/2019 07:09 PM Boaty ball [by warren460]
We are now on a ball at leverick Bay.

Most BB here are empty.

Several fcfs balls still available.

For the sake of BB, book a ball even if you don't need or want it.

They need your business.
