OLD - 9 temples in a day. An adventure in Bangkok

OLD pictures. I went for short vacations in Bangkok, Thailand.
Shamus, my best 'farang' friend and his wife Lek had their birthday!
Lek decided to go to pray in 9 different temples. 9 means "step" in Thai, it's like a lucky number.
Each temple has a special meaning....so we (10 people) went for it, and we did it!
we first took the skytrain which is...quite impressive.
