2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup butter, softened
1 1/2 cups white sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/2 cup sugar for rolling cookies
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper.
In a small bowl, stir together flour, baking powder and salt. Set aside.
Using a mixer, beat together the butter and sugar until smooth and very fluffy. Beat in egg and vanilla extract. Gradually blend in the dry ingredients.
Roll rounded teaspoonfuls of dough into balls, and roll in sugar. Place on lined cookie sheets about 1 1/2 inches apart.
Bake 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven, or until lightly browned. Let stand on cookie sheet two minutes before removing to cool on wire racks.
I didn't have a mixer so I just used arm power XD I'm sure they would turn out better with a mixer.

Another early morning had us heading towards Chinatown again and our first stop was the Golden Buddha at the Wat Traimit Temple. It's the worlds largest solid golden statue.
Located at the end of Chinatown Yaowarat Road, and near Hualampong Railway Station.
The building has been newly renovated and but still has the old classic architect.
We has wonderful weather for our trip!
More golden statues.
There were hardly any people there, so we could enjoy the temple at our own pace and don't have to be squashed in. The room is pretty small.
View from the top.
We have arrived at Chinatown!
The streets are busy.
First stop is some pomegranate juice!
So many shops, so many things! Lots of crafty things, bulk items. It's crazy! You could actually spend days just wandering the back streets.
Of course we stop for some snacks!
And some more. These are made from coconuts.
This weird green thing, we had no clue, but was one of the most amazing things we ate!
Some noodles for lunch.

We arrived late at our hotel in Eqypt, and soon we fell asleep. It was another early wakeup call for us the next day and we went and had our last breakfast of our trip.
Today's tourist spot was the Mosque of Muhammad Ali.
My friend had to get a gown because you can't have a lot of skin showing and she had on a tank top.
Our last stop was a museum and we were lucky enough to have a chance to see real mummies! Sorry no pictures of those.
One final shopping stop and we were off to the airport.
Our flight back to Tokyo.
We enjoyed some pizza at the airport.
