Today we went to see the Grand Palace in Bangkok. This is where the King of Thailand lives. He is loved by the people of Thailand. Everywhere you go, you see pictures of him, the queen and his daughter in big gold frames. He is very old. At the Grand Palace, they have the Emerald Buddha which is not really made of an emerald. It is Jade. The Buddha is dressed in an outfit. The outfit is changed every four months. He has a summer outfit, a winter outfit and and a rainy season outfit. The clothes are made of real gold. The only person allowed to change the buddha's clothes is the king. All the people of Thailand watch him do this on television. My brother Micah thinks it is funny that the king still plays with dolls. My dad said it is like the world's most expensive american girl doll.
The Grand Palace has all the different kinds of Chedi's (the towers).
