The other day we went to visit Ayutthaya which is a city that was once the capital of what was once Siam. It was hot as hell and I thought that at any moment one or all of us might fall over. We did get to see a pretty ginormous reclining Buddha and some other next looking sites. Not a lot to report from good ol' Ayutthaya but it was a quality day trip with lots o photo ops. The highlight of the day for me was the chance to see the buried Buddha. The only part of his body that exists is his head and the remainder of his frame is said to be buried under the Earth beneath him. Maybe it is.. maybe it isn't but in my mind it definitely is!
