I start walking. And walking. And walking. I finally look down at my watch and christ....I've been walking for an hour and a half. I know I've been following the signs, but these signs haven't necessarily lead me in a straight line. So basically, I was a little lost out in the middle of nowhere.
I didn't want to LOOK lost so I just kinda kept walking confidently, all the time thinking in my head, "WHERE THE FUCK AM I." Suddenly I see a bunch of Thai flags and arrows pointing towards something up ahead. I started thinking I might actually find this place. I didn't, but instead I found the Wihan Phramongkhon Bophit, which is a chapel and religious site. Tons of people praying everywhere. I noticed that there were coin-operated shrines. You put in 10 baht, and these electric candles light up and started playing music. Really cool. I wanted to take a picture but there were people praying at all of them and I thought it'd be fucking rude. So, instead. I walked into buildings that I'm not sure I was supposed go to in and took some other cool pictures. Check them out in the photo gallery.
So, that took me awhile and I realized as I was leaving that my legs were fucking SORE. I ran a 10K this morning, and then walked for at least 2.5 hours. I was over it already. But still probably had about 1 hour of walking left to go. I just decided to head towards the bridge, take a right, and eventually I'd get back to the apartment.
About 1 mile into my walk, a motorcycle cab (don't get any fancy ideas...this is just a guy on a crotch rocket) slowed down, and honked. This pretty much means, "You want a fucking ride, you crazy American?" I had yet to take a cab of any kind, and was thinking a tuk tuk would probably be less....dangerous...but what the fuck. I climbed on the back, dress and all, and back we went to my apartment. It was actually cool as hell and I wanna do it again.
In other news, there were a shitload of puppies at the chapel and I wanted to take one. Why do all these wild dogs have to be so adorable?
