Ayutthaya: Second day visiting more temples

Wednesday 30, January 2019 19 km – Total so far 2172km

I woke up like always, went to have breakfast and had a nice talk to an english couple. They were such nice people and I forgot the time a little bit. When I finally looked at my watch it was almost noon, 11:30.

Quickly I got ready and took my bike. I wanted to look for the reclined Buddha. It is a temple that lies a little bit outside of the city.

On my way I passed a place with a lot of elephants. They are all there to take tourists for a ride. Poor animals….The area seemed kind of empty with no people at all.

Peaceful. In one of the temples I saw a green snake but it was so fast that I couldn t take a picture.

I continued my trip outside the city and I went to see other Wats. Also one Catholic Church appeared. To go back to my guesthouse I had to take a small ferry and when I arrived it was already 4pm.

I met a Germany guy called Ralph also traveling by bike. Of course we exchanged our experiences. He is on the road for 2 months already and probably will be another 2 months more. Oh, I envied him.

I did the journal and packed my panniers. Tomorrow will be my last day of cycling. How I’m gonna miss it!! Better not to think about it…..
I went to have dinner with Ralph to the stall close to the guesthouse.

We both enjoyed the tasty food and while we were eating and talking we had a couple of beers. We really had a good time.
When we went back I met the english couple from the morning and had another drink with them.

Finally at 11pm I went to my room to finish packing all my stuff. I could feel the drinks a little bit, and I wonder when I will get up tomorrow…
