Well all I can say is GOLD. This temple is crazy beautiful with gold and mosaics and people - tourists - including me of course ! It's HOT and humid and sweaty but I'm loving it . Our guides are really good as are the others on my tour. I did not bring a hat and should have but I put my white shirt over my head and that worked well . The temple floors were very clean which was good because I forgot socks too and one has to take off shoes to go in to see the Buddhas . I also recorded the monks chanting , well , I thought I did but I can't find it so ... Next time . Guess I screed the pooch a bit today but I'm having fun anyway ( wont mention my swollen ankles - since when did I start swelling up in humidity I must be getting fn old:-(
Tomorrow we are off to Chaing Mai for 3 nights . It should be cooler as its in the mountains. Hopefully the typhoon heading for Vietnam Nam misses us by going through as fast as it came up . Ill let you know at the end of the trip.
