We Stayed In Today,

or I should say I did,

Diana meet Flor at 10.00 in the morning and off they went to the Soi Bukaow market, I stayed at home as the day before Phil had arrived from the UK and would be popping round for a tea and a chat, so we spent the day catching up on everything, also rather nicely he had brought with him a couple of motoring magazines and the latest edition of Private Eye which is always a great read, we ate our evening meal then Barry called round for a chat, after saying our goodbyes it was feet up for Tut, a television mini series about the youngest Pharaoh to rule Ancient Egypt, Tutankhamun, we have watched many documentaries on this period of Egyptian history, some detailing how the various buildings and monuments would have look at the time in the colours that were known to have been used, the result is the architecture in this series is stunning, the buildings looking just as we would have expected them to look at the time, the story line somewhat improbable but this is not a history lesson it is a drama made for television, albeit with great attention to buildings and dress, we watched two episodes and are really looking forward to the next disc in the box, and with that we were off to bed.
