We were still getting used to the heat and humidity after being in South America, but made it through the day walking the temple circuit. Wihaan Mongkhon Bophit is a relatively modern temple, but it is noteworthy because it has one of Thailand's largest bronze casted Buddha images from the 15th century. Out favourite was Wat Phra Si Sanpehet for the three huge bell shaped stupas. Some of the structures are leaning (and looked like they are about to crumble) so we didn't spend too much time standing under them. :)
We also avoided the packs of dogs that like to terrorize visitors. Ugh.
Our second day in Ayuthaya was a rest day - we watched a movie (The Mexican), chatted with travelers, and read our books to map out the rest of the journey.
