Bang Sare - Buddha

He is everywhere!

Today was a public holiday in this area. Dave had the day off from school, good job really as him and Jason were very hungover didn't get up until one o'clock!

We needed to go into town to see about our next trip down to Ko Chang so Dave drove us to Pattaya to try to find a travel agent open on a bank holiday.

Managed to book a minibus and ferry crossing for 600b each (15€) which seemed like good value as its 4 and half hours away and that included a ferry crossing too. All booked up for tomorrow morning as Dave's back to work and we don't want to get in the way or overstay our welcome.

Had a fantastic lunch AGAIN!!!!! The food in this country has me smitten. Thankfully Si-chon has introduced us to loads of dishes so we at least know what to order and what to avoid.

Then we drove up to Buddha mountain with spectacular views over Pattaya.

Si-chon showed me how to request a blessing for Buddha at the temple and I prayed for health and success. All quite moving really even though I'm not remotely religious. By the way, tons and tons of Russian tourists here in Thailand like in Salou.

Dave drove us to another special place called Buddha Mountain (Khao Chi Chan) for a quick photo stop as we were all shattered by now and the lads hangovers were kicking in!

Look how happy Jason looks here!
