... got a seat inside in the air conditioning-the heat outside was getting fierce. It was slightly more expensive than our usual meals but worth it-I got pork fried rice and pork and shrimp vegetable spring rolls. It cost us 200 baht each, which was fairly reasonable and very delicious. After lunch, we cycled towards another temple and ruins. On the way we passed elephant on the street. They had big chairs on their backs, and cloth over them and they were carrying people ...
... natured. They want to do nothing more than have a good time, all the time. They tell jokes, laugh, and play all day. From a teaching perspective this can be frustrating, but mostly is just so enjoyable. They are extremely competitive, and anytime you can turn the lesson into a two team competition, you have the whole classes focus.

... and many delicious skewers. While at the market, you can either stay on land or take a boat trip along the canal to visit temples. At nighttime, firefly’s buzz brightly around the area. We had a wonderful and relaxing time at the market, and I highly recommend a trip out to Amphawa for anyone in Bangkok!
We plan on returning to Thailand to visit the north in a few weeks. For now, we are heading to Myanmar (formally known as Burma).
