A slightly different start to December.

. #dirasinbangkok Wat Pho Temple, untuk menyusuri semua area kuil kira kira 2 - 2.5 jam. Terkenal dengan patung Buddha tidur yang dipercaya sebagai posisi berbaring buddha sebelum kematian, dan menuju nirvana. Tidak banyak yang tau kalau di #WatPho terdapat School of thai medicine sampai sekarang, dan merupakan tempat awal lahirnya thai massage. Terus kalo mau bisa belajar disini! Eksotis, kaya budaya, dan cantik!
Work took me from Cambodia to Bangkok this week. Today I took advantage of the half day we got off before an intensive multi-day workshop tomorrow. Got to check out the reclining Buddha ( #watpho ), meander thru city streets and navigate public transport (by river and streets). All in all, not too shabby Bangkok... but then again it was a public holiday today so the streets weren't at their Bangkokiest (yup it's a word made up by me and since I'm an anthropologist, it's okay). Grateful for workmates who have lived in this city before and took me under their wing.
Since we arrived in Bangkok I have been in a constant state of awe.
There are some places so spectacular that no photograph can ever do them justice. ✨
Anyone been to Bangkok?
