Doctor Bum (read What’s up Doc) is going by Ayutthaya, only a few kilometers south of Ped’s. Great news for me, since i have never visited this famous historical city (XIV century) .
Bum , of course, knows all the main temples by heart : Wat Phra Si Sanphet, Wat Mahathat and it’s famous Bouddha’s head, strangled by the ficus’ roots, Wat Lokaya Sutha, Wat Phra Ram …
Temples, more and more temples, downfall of bricks, amongst modern, concrete, noisy towns, as all the towns of South East Asia. Ayutthaya is not a really nice place, but the ancient Siam capital city reveals secret places and treasures,hidden all along, when taking a stroll.
At dusk, elephants’ figures fondle the old walls, spots get stronger and underline magnificent trees that look welded to the place since eternity….
