Sukhothai

We said our goodbyes to Tanja and the Swiss couple and left with Heio and Gyptsy to the train station.  It was going to be a 6 hr trip, first by local train (where many many backpackers were horribly sick) and then by bus.  We arrived at around 4ish and found some bungalows at one of the guesthouses.   A charming little thing we got, but as we found out that night, the bungalow was paperthin and we all froze duing the night.  All we had were kid-size blankets (with little dogs and cats prints) that were either full of holes or full of dirt. Not exactly the cleanest guesthouse we’ve stayed at.

The next day we rented bikes and went around the many wats in Sukhothai with Heio and Gypsy.  Sukhothai was Thailand’s original capital and as such, is a must for anybody who wants to find out more about the country’s history.

The biking was great, but Tim and I are getting wat’ed out; we’ve seen too many wats in the last two weeks and are ready for a change of pace.  Mae Sot will be good for that.
