mood hot & sticky
I see Wats everywhere.
Today is our third day in Sukhothai. We took a 5 hour bus here from Chiang Mai. Apparently the only reason people visit this place is to see the old temple ruins in the Sukhothai Historical Park, which are supposed to be whoa marvelous. We originally intended to visit them yesterday. But alas, keiko had a bout of diarrhoea and was confined to bed, so yesterday I bummed around. Walked to the internet cafe, bought food, and idly browsed my Thailand Lonely Planet so many times that I even remembered the author's little biography writeup word for work. Almost, anyway. I was so nearly bored out of my wits.
Anyway, so we got to visit the historical park today. Frankly, I think it is a bit overrated. All the wats look the same to me. Oh well, at least now I know.
Tonight we are taking a 6-7 hour bus ride to Bangkok and then a 5 hour bus ride to Trat, after which we will then plonk ourselves on a ferry and head to Ko Chang.
The internet cafes here dont have a card reader, unlike those in Australia. So no photos!
