Calator in Thailanda 23. Wat Chang Lom / Traveller in Thailand 23. Wat Chang Lom

The last wat we visited that morning was Wat Chang Lom.The chedi is interesting here, adorned with elephant statues, coming out from the wall, as they sustain the whole chedi.

This morning visit gave us a good feeling due to the sun (which was not burning yet), pure air, the silence interrupted only by the birds’ song, and the green of the landscape.

We came back to the guesthouse at 9 o’clock. A good breakfast waited for us there. There have been eggs (prepared as you wanted), toast, butter, home jams (ananas, strawberry, orange), coconut pudding wrapped in a leaf and served with wild honey from the comb, juice, tea/coffee. And all this at the amazing price of 100 bht/person/day or 2.45 euro!

Ultimul dintre cele waturi vizitate dimineata, devreme, a fost Wat Chang Lom. Ceea ce se remarca aici este chdi-ul traditional in forma de clopot, ornamentat la baza cu statui de elefanti, al caror corp iese pe jumatate din perete, sugerand ca poarta in spate greutatea constructiei
Plimbarea aceasta de dimineata ne-a dat multa energie, datorata soarelui care nu era inca prea arzator, aerului curat, linistii punctate doar de cantecul pasarilor si verdelui proaspat si suculent care ne-a inconjurat.
La ora 9 erau deja inapoi la pensiunea lui Paolo, unde ne astepta un mic dejun consistent, alcatuit din unul sau mai multe oua, preparate dupa dorinta, paine prajita, unt, trei feluri de gemuri de casa (capsuni, ananas si  portocale), budinca de cocos, amabalata in frunza si servita cu miere salbatica din fagure, banane, suc si cafea/ceai. Toate acestea la pretul de 100 bht/persoana/zi, adica 2.45 euro!

Ha, ha, Yvonaut, I have the same problem with the new proving system. The second word is very difficult to read. Thanks for the comment!

Minunati elefantii si foarte apetisant micul dejun. Marmelada de ananas ? Miere salbatica ? Grozav suna si cred, ca ti-a ramas o amintire fooooarte dulce. Amanuntele astea sint sarea si piperul unei calatorii.
Duminica frumoasa, cit a mai ramas din ea !
