After the Royal Palace, we headed down to Wat Pho.  Unfortunately President Obama was in town also wanted to see Wat Pho.  This meant, the whole block was quarantined off so he could see it by himself.  Not only could we not go in, they had us stuck on a block and wouldn't let us leave.  After some time, we spotted a back way out and snuck away.  From there, we took the short walk over to Wat Ratchabophit.  This wat was almost entirely empty except for a few monks working on the grounds.  It was quite the relief after being surrounded by so many people at the palace.
