We woke up a little early. The plan was for 8:30, but Lauren couldn't bear to disturb my angelic slumber. We shambled out at a little after 9:30 and headed straight for the bus station. This was supposed to kill two birds. A couple of more western oriented cafés were there and we would be catching a bus to the temples. Both cafés were closed.
