#sol17- Day 22/31- March 22, 2017

 I am in love with this city! I woke up early (by chance, not on purpose), so caught the morning almsgiving routine by looking out from the balcony of my room. Locals (and tourists) give sticky rice and other food to the monks who are on their way to their temple for the day.

I later headed out to the morning market nearby. I was amazed at the variety of food available, as well as the other services offered (including manicures).

Alive, and leaping about.

This poor guy was alive, but bound.

On the street manicure. 

 

From there I headed to the royal palace to get some history in (no pictures allowed).

As I walked back toward my hotel I ran into the woman, Angela,  I had met on the van shuttle to my hotel the first day. She and a new acquaintance were heading to the waterfalls for the afternoon, so I quickly booked myself in too. Being there you realize how small the city really is as we saw people we recognized from walking around for a few days.

After a lovely afternoon Angela and I dropped by a French bakery for a quick snack and then she was off to do a cooking course (I will likely do another one tomorrow- we shall see).

Now it is time to look for a place for dinner. I could get used to this!
