Just thought I would drop you guys a lil line or two to check in - I am just in the internet cafe searching for a spa!
All is well.... today got up early afteran amazing nights sleep due to exhaustion! Had breakfast (which included egg fried rice and wontons heehee!) and prepared for a day in the heat (yes mum I had a hat and suncream galore!). Decided to walk from our hotel on Ko San Road to the Grand Temple but after about 5 minutes realised we had no chance due to a. the heat and b. the millions of tuk tuk touts who really bug you! So jumped in a much welcomed air con cab and he dropped us at the gate - for 12 pence!
Grad Palace is beautiful - all of the temples are. At the Grand Palace we saw the infamous emerald buddha and sat with the monks. After the Grand Palace we headed to Wat Arun - we had to take a river boat across the river to get to it. It again was stunning and I took lots of pictures. We got the river boat back across and decided to stop for some much needed lunch - I had phad thai and coconut juice... it was yummy yum yum!
After lunch we went to Wat Po - which was welll and truly open despite every tout telling us other wise 'why you don't come to my shop instead lady' haha!
After several hours in the heat I had a touch of heat stroke and managed to vomit which was hideous - but I sat in the shade and had a rehydration treatment and after half an hour I was ok. To treat our weary feet we indulged in a reflexology foot massage at the Wat Po Massage University -it was heaven!
A short cab ride home and am now back at the hotel. I am going to lie down for an hour ith a cool flannel and relax then head up to the roof for a dip!
Tonight the plan is to visit China Town for dinner and the market - then to head to Sumkhumvit to an Irish pub owned by the brother of our flight attendant who has promised us a free beer! I feel it is essential to visit an irish pub in each country i visit!!!
Anyhoo money is running low on the timer so I am off for now.
Woof woof to Tigue... and mum don't worry I am fine!!!
