We were touring during Christmas vacation, partly because that's when academics have a long vacation, and partly because the region would be less torrid than during the summer. Even so, the weather in Bangkok was very hot and humid, and on the morning of our arrival, December 22, Paula, Megan and I walked to Robinson's Department store where they bought swimming suits to use in the hotel pool, and I bought some traditional Thai music on CD and a two-disk set of the compositions of the king of Thailand, who plays sax and writes big-band numbers. Note the Christmas decorations on the department store.
