the ayutthaya ruins experience-bangkok 2007

so much for reprieve. N gave me an ultimatum to finish my bangkok posts and no amount of pleading for extension could sway him. that's my man. :)


i was still on a rush from my too-good-to-be-true encounter with the elephants when we proceeded to explore Wat Phra Si San Phet and other ruins in the Ancient Palace in ayutthaya. it seemed almost unreal and magical to be surrounded by the centuries old structures - towering and grand in every sense. the whole complex was so full of history that i just felt trivial.

our cameras went a-clicking here and there while N and I made sure to get as far away as possible from his little monster of a nephew who would either run ahead of N to hold my hand or friskily cling on to me like a koala.

temples and buddha ruins are spread and scattered all over the city, some already incorporated in current buildings and compounds, that there was always something to see left or right. such was the case when we were on our way back home, when we chanced upon Wat Lokayasutharam or the Temple of the Reclining Buddha. at more than 27 meters, it was one huge buddha!

it was a long, fun-filled day in ayutthaya for us, capped by dinner at a german-themed beer garden near bangkok, where the little perv slash nephew, upon seeing that N went to the restroom, creeped under the table, gave me a back hug and was starting to inch his hands towards my chest until he got the spank from me.

I don't remember having visited this place when I last went to Bangkok. It looks ancient and nice. :)
