Wat Chaiwatthanaram with my uncle
Wat Mahathat and the sandstone Buddha head in the roots of a Banyan tree
The chedi's of Wat Phra Si Sanphet (the old stone) and Viharn Phra Mongkol Bopitah (the red and gold temple)
After walking around all day it was nice to catch a ride, on an elephant and have some sparkling-dragon water. One of the other pachyderms even wanted to give my uncle a kiss!
At the Royal Summer Palace I was exhausted and hot and didn't get many pictures but I did climb to the top of the observatory and made a new friend out of a giant wild lizard.
For our trip back to Bangkok we took a cruise down the Chao Phrya River
*Note: The whole trip to Thailand my aunt, uncle and I noticed how strangely tourist-free everything was. No more so than this day trip did we see the lack of travelers. We had most of the ruins completely to ourselves with no one in sight besides our tiny group. It was eerily empty at the Summer Palace, and the river cruise was set up for easily 100 people, but there were only 10 people taking the trip. It was very strange.
