As we were leaving an old lady, with the blackest teeth I have ever seen, sold us some incense to light in “her” temple. When we weren’t all that receptive to that idea she, and her friend, took us on a tour round the back of her temple and showed us another buddha we would never have found! It must be her party trick – she turned out to be Number1 photographer san and charged accordingly. For the first time in a long time there are photos of us together being tourists – hot, sweaty and tired touristsbut photos none the less. Good temple though.
I haven’t spoken about the food yet. Worth flying here just to eat. Mostly we walk around till we find a cafe/restuarant that takes our fancy. 4 – 6 courses and a bottle or two (depending on the size) of Tiger beer = $15.00. Money well spent. And there are restaurants everywhere.
Also out of curiosity I went into an optomitrist to check out the cost of sunglasses. I left my good ones at home and bought my cheap pair with me (ha ha ha ha – cheap $260.00 – it’s all relative). Well 2 pair of sunglasses and 2 pair of prescription reading glasses later……..approx $70.00 per pair. I have heard that in the UK people are now ordering their glasses from Asia through the internet and it is only costing GBP20.00 or so. If I knew how to add clicky link thingies I would do so as someone else has written all about it.
I believe tomorrow is cooking lesson day.
