This is the banner from the conference I attended at Suan Sunandha Rajabhat University in Bangkok.
This conference was 5 days long and the conference shuttled foreign participants to and from the hotel near the city center every day. I never realized how terribly awful the traffic in Bangkok is. From the Centara Grand to the university was only 4.3 miles. It always took over 45 minutes to get to the university in the morning. In the evening it took about 60 to 90 minutes to get back to the hotel. At that rate, one could actually walk faster.
I used this calculator in a workshop and I have never seen this one before. It's called a TI-84 Pocket SE. It's much smaller than the ones we use.
The university was celebrating a milestone anniversary this week and the campus was being prepared for the royal family to visit. So the conference arranged for a couple of tours. I chose to go to the Grand Palace even though I had been there before. It was nice to have a guide this time and we were told all kinds of stories and history of Bangkok and the royal family. This picture is one of the most famous landmarks in Thailand.
This picture shows the Emerald Buddha which is located within a temple, but taking pictures is not allowed. So this is the best I could get.
