Today we visit Arutthaya.
2hrs to get there. A really cool old temple and one of four areas that used of be a capital of Thailand. The steps up were quite the hike and then the rain started. So everyone found some sort of shelter till it calmed down but by that time we had to leave. I ventured out with an umbrella to take some pics before that.
You have to admire cultures that have ancient history dating back hinders and thousands of years. This is one of the reasons I like it here. There is so much to learn and enjoy. That being said, some of those outdated cultural beliefs prevent many people from spiritually evolving and accepting that this is one big world and we all share it.
So I could go on about another temple bit I’ll let you just browse the album. We saw 3 different temple sites and really they all kinda look the same. If I only saw one then I would have gotten the idea.
It was also very humid again so that sapped a lit of energy.
After we got back we took a quick shower and headed out to get a real Thai massage. We had gotten a partial one that one did legs that day before and that was nice. A traditional Thai massage is not relaxing. It is therapeutic. It is deep muscle working and you know which muscles hurt and you also know which ones you never knew you had :)
I got pulled and stretched pretty damn well. It’s kinda like going to the chiropractors. My lower back was really worked out and probably the first time on a very long while that it was so worked. I was feeling it the next morning for sure. Just goes to show how much it gets ignored I think.
I slept well regardless :)
