Thailand. I remember bicycling around the ruins at Sukhothai and the surrounding area. With foot brakes and a low seat, it was just my speed.
While in “ruins,” the standing remnants retained enough detail so you didn’t need much imagination to understand Sukhothai Kingdom’s former magnificence.
On that gray day, some of the surviving bits took on a magical air, as though you could hold a seance and bring it back to life.
I liked to pull over and sit looking over the scene. These are a few of my favorite scenes.
Buy it. Read it. (Or listen to it.) Let me know what you think. –TMLL
