Day 2 – Buddha Park. After getting all the necessary information on how to get to the Buddha Park, we thanked the old lady and left immediately. We were on the road again…..
Richard gave me the map again, i guess he was still hoping that I could be of some help this time 🙂 So i took it from him, I folded it neatly and put it in my pocket knowing that we could still manage without it. We were okay for the first 20 minutes or so but when the roads got a bit complicated, he started asking me which way to go. So i reached for my pocket to consult my neatly folded map and suddenly I was having my “map moment” again. The map was gone.. yes, all gone 🙂 He just made a sarcastic remark when I told him about it and we went straight ahead. We made a few stops to get some rest and to do a little stretching. Riding a motorbike for hours was really tiring. We made our first stop near the Thai-Laos friendship bridge. Unfortunately I dont have the bridge photos now. I lost too many holiday photos when my pc hard drive crashed. I was not able to make a backup as they were on a separate pc. I was planning to back it up but I was too late. 😦 Anyway I still got hundreds of photos so I’m sure I wont run out of stuff to post.
I called this thing a monster pumpkin 🙂 We had to pass through its mouth to get inside. I could imagine myself being swallowed by a monster while entering the door. It was a bit dark inside and we had to climb up the stairs to get to the top. The top was like a view deck, we were able to see the entire park from there. It was a bit scary though since the roof was not flat. We had a really good view ot the entire park and I was to walk around (360 degrees) and able to take a few more photographs.
