Thaïland: On the road from Amphawa to Chumphon

Second day of the trip:

we leave Amphawa and its klongs to Chumphon. A lunch on the lovely Ban Krut Beach, almost desert and very clean. And as we say in French, “no shadow of (pas l’ombre)” a tourist (picture 2).

A few tables scattered here and there: excellent thai food. I’m intrigued by the giant Buddha off set on a small hill facing seafront (picture 3). After lunch, we visit the temple Prachuap Khiri Khan, where the giant Buddha rises.

Then we hit the road to Hin Chang Spirit House. A temple dedicated to Ganesh. I didn’t count how many statues of elephants, but it’s pretty impressive (pictures 4 & 5)! You can find all sizes and colors. And not to mention firecrackers … yes, deafening (I’m not exaggerating) with a maximum of smoke, facing the altar (picture 6)!

And while the mini bus away from Hin Chang Spirit House, I have a king of vision on the side of the road! My meeting of the day! A traveling monk from Cambodia (pictures 1 & 7). Angor Wat is one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever been. There is something mystical and magical (I promise I will post some pictures!)

. The monk walked from Cambodia and goes south of Thailand. I couldn’t explain why he reminds me of David Carradine on the road in the famous Kung Fu series (I think?). Undaunted, the monk continues his road, a water bottle in hand. The best meetings are often those due to chance … Don’t you think so?
