it’s a small world after all

today we took a day-trip to an outdoor museum/theme park called muang boran. according to the website, “Just a visit to the Ancient City is comparable to a Thailand-round journey within a day.” and i must say, this is true… it was truly the lazy man’s way to experience all of thailand’s architecture, history, and culture in the air conditioned comfort of aung’s little honda. there were replicas of famous temples, even the grand palace (bangkok), a floating market where we could buy lunch, the ruins of sukothai, and more. we also found various animals scattered around trying to escape the heat, including hog deer, a cow (maybe? jess thinks it’s a bull), and even water buffalo!
