Day Twenty Eight - Thirty Seven

A lunchtime walk

Today we worked at a unique "Design book library" in another place in the city, and on the way back, our cameras were out to capture a different part of the city.

This is going into my ever-growing "sleeping security guard" collection.

A stroll back from work

A common theme these few weeks was walking back to the hotel through a different detour daily.

I'm always amazed at the ways people find to lounge on a motorcycle/moped.

From 5-star design hotels and apartment towers to wooden huts next to a mosquito-infested river, the contrast can be big sometimes.

Those circles in the water aren't rain drops..

Wandering through the back-alleys you'll get to see many different living conditions.

Wat Pha Lat

Just outside the city lies a temple complex on a mountain called "Wat Phrathat Doi Suthep." It's the place everyone goes to, but just below that on the mountain lies another temple complex called: "Wat Pha Lat."

In my opinion, it's a much nicer complex that feels more ancient and one with nature than the big complex at the top.

The evening was great, a little bit hot and humid, with a thunderstorm brewing in the distance, providing a nice auditory background while wandering around the complex.

A monk was sweeping the grounds, some stray dogs and cats lounging here and there, in general, just a nice place to "be."

The plan was to head up to Wat Phrathat Doi Suthep after this temple, but the brewing thunderstorm paid a visit with torrential rain as a result.

The road turned into a river, and the stairs became a waterfall. Time to head back to the city for Korean BBQ!
