Amy our guide tok us to Wat Po with the temple if the reclingbuddah, a huge staute covered in gold leaf. And then some f the stuppahs and pagodas in side the temple complex.

After our good olook aroudn we vwentruoredacroso the road after some friendly locals pinted us in the right direction toward Ko San Roiad where we had noodle and managd to get back to hte hotel to pack up.
