Contemplating Ayutthaya

After walking across the train tracks in Ayutthaya, I waited for the boat to take the group across the river into the ancient capital of Thailand. It wasn’t a wide river, but it was the easiest way across as no one knew how to get to the bridge.Ayutthaya pier

I find this photo rather calming, almost contemplative. I can stare at the picture and ponder the great questions of life as I sip my chocolate macadamia nut coffee from Corrado’s in Clifton, NJ (how could I pass up two pounds of this coffee for $6?).

This was a great introduction to Aytthaya–calmly waiting on the river to see Buddhist relics. Unfortunately, there were too many people on the pier for meditation.
