So we spent the next hour and a half peacefully admiring the massive stupas and the dozens of Buddhas lining the walls of the complex.
For lunch we found a nearby restaurant called the Bitter Deck, which was attached to a small boutique hotel, the name of which escapes me.
Normally I can go, go, go, on vacation, but after our two-hour tour in the tropical heat we needed a break inside a cool air-conditioned shop, where we inhaled a large iced tea to recharge us, before moving onto Wat Po, a 10 minute walk away.Although we had read about this and expected it to be big, it is truly massive.This temple was a bit more crowded than what we encountered at the Royal Palace because more people had to funnel into a smaller space, but surprisingly, most people left the area after seeing the reclining Buddha, and the rest of Wat Po was empty by comparison.I will say that I was a bit surprised by my reaction to the climate.I'm used to the dry heat in Los Angeles, where the weather channel will say that it's 93° out, but feels like 83.
We enjoyed watching the river traffic from our balcony on the eighth floor, and the room was surprisingly quiet with the door closed, especially since we requested being on the end of the building furthest from the noisy bridge that goes over the river.
