Test Of Time...

We woke up to a 3 day holiday weekend. We get an additional day of because of the make up of the Thai mother day (Aug12). Tone grabbed an article from the paper and the map and lead our way to Bangnumpueng Floating market. It is not too far from where we live. It is one of the last green zone near Bangkok and right on Chaopraya river. We had fun shopping at the floating market all morning until Tone drove through a last temple on the route. I felt like we slipped thru the time-machine. This is an old temple from late Ayuthya era (about 300 years ago). Tone, Iris, and I went in side the decaying hall and felt in awe with the mural and the impact that it made us feel back in time three century. And what amaze me is that this temple stood right in the middle of modern world. And many people walk by it.
