Flag of Thailand  ,
Friday, March 31, 2006

The last thing I want is for this blog to become a dry history lesson, so I'll direct you here for detailed information about Thailand's 13th century first capital, the old kingdom of Sukkhothai.

Sukkhothai (A UNESCO World Heritage site, is a fascinating place; it is not filled with as many tourists as other areas of Thailand, and so the slower pace was a refreshing change.

We almost immediately made friends with this wonderful Brazilian guy while waiting for the street vendor to finish grilling our barbecued pork and chicken gizzard (Eva's favorite). He is a gentle giant-- a bear of a man with the kindest disposition you could hope for (see first photo in this album entry). We spent the evening and the next day together exploring the ruins and talking about life, the universe and everything. He was off to Laos, and we were on our way back to Bangkok, and so our paths crossed only for a short while. However I have a feeling that Brazil will be on our travel agenda soon, so be ready for us Mauricio :)
