Good Day All!

Today we went temple traveling! Temples in Thailand are called Wat. We started at the Phra Nakhon district to see the legendary Wat Pho Temple Complex. Wat Pho is also known as the Reclining Buddha and is the most famous and largest statue standing at 60 meters. In this same temple is also the known birthplace of Traditional Thai Massage. Traditional Thai massage is a type of massage that involves stretching and deep massage.

We also saw the soaring Wat Arun (Temple of Dawn) that offers a great city view and Wat Traimit (Temple of Golden Buddha) that has 4.5 tonne solid-gold carving.

Today was such a long day walking though all of the temples we stopped to get a cup of coffee every now and then. Rebecca and Jen are such addicts! We didn't see any Starbucks but we are keeping our eyes open! I think if we were to see one Rebecca would just die -- she loves coffee that much!
Now it is 8pm and we are absolutely wiped and a little bit thrown off by Jet Lag. (Don't you just LOVE Jet Lag? -- Not.) Anyways this is it for today and look forward for tomorrows blog! We'll be looking forward to you!

Goodnight little bloggers.

Rebecca, Jen, and Allie
