having been in thailand for a month, i thought, maybe i should actually visit a sight or two… go see a temple, something like that. it is only right, isn’t it….
so off i trotted on the busy busy ferry on the dirty dirty river, heading south to the old royal district, and noticing the odd view or two as i went.
anyway, after a quick detor to the post office to pick up a letter that had been awaiting me there since the dawn of time (ryans fine, btw), i headed out and about, taking a slow, very sweaty stroll around the place. this part of the town was really quite different from the other places. everything was more spread out and relaxed and a little bit more spiritual i guess.
anyway. i found a big door, but it was locked and i could see no visible handles or cracks or anyway to get in… but there seemed to be a riddle above it in a foreign tongue:
anyway, i went on a big long adventure involving killing dragons and stuff, and eventually found out how to get in. (theres a picture of the mighty dragon on my flickr stream.. check it out yeeah.)
well. it was kinda worth it. i visited the grand palace (or the outside of it cause it closed at 3.) and wat pho, (poo temple i think that translates as?), and it was very pretty i think. it was all pretty cool and nice, and then eventually i made why way to the centre.. it was a bit of a maze to my untrained brain, and in the centre was a massive golden buddha kind of thing that was really big and gold and shiny. far bigger and shinier than all the other buddhas, and there were a lot of others.
finally, after a long time of staring in glee, i found my way out of the temple, but some evil woman had stolen my shoes. i hadn’t noticed the sign on the way in.
needless to say. i hunted her down and destroyed her. yum yum.
see ya in australia folks. xxx
