We teamed up with a couple of friends and headed off into the interior. First stop was the Wat Chalong Temple. Incredibly ornate. Had a thing about elephants.
There was a firecracker resonator that scared the shit out of us. It went off unexpectedly making a deafening racket as if someone was throwing grenades in our ears! There wouldn’t be many evil spirits left around after that!!
Even as a devout atheist Buddhism has a great appeal to me. We got married in a Buddhist temple.
