Thailand: Buddhist Temples

After a slightly nauseating ride to & from the Elephant Nature Park yesterday, I think we were all keen to stick to tuk-tuks only and check out some temples in town. We slept in, went out for a really nice breakfast, and then walked to several temples. This was not particularly exciting for the kids, but they went along with it until lunch time. Then I went back out and did a little shopping while everyone else rested at the hotel. I only wish I knew what any of the things at the temples meant! At one place, a lady just at the bottom of the steps to the temple was selling baskets of birds for you to release. She said it was for good luck and who were we to argue? I don't know how she catches the birds but they flew off and maybe we'll have good luck. Who knows.
