寺廟 Temple

相中打坐的是Oat,是泰國人,他被阿媽迫出家,我們和他在寺中住了十天。寺廟叫Sam Kor,在他老家Ban Pho,距曼谷大京都約九十五公里,我們和Oat是一起踏自行車過來。 Here's Oat, a very helpful and interesting Thai guy and we become very good friends. He was forced to become a monk (for only 2 weeks though) by his mom, so we stayed at Wat Sam Kor Temple together with him for around 10 days, the temple is at Ban Pho County (95km away from Bangkok).

跑簽證 Visa run

薯伯伯的泰國免簽停留只有三十天,到期了只好去柬埔寨,出一出泰國邊境,再即日回來,又可以多留三十天。至於小剛剛,則連護照也不用…… In Thailand most foreigners can stay for 30 days without a visa, but an extension is either difficult or expensive, a better way is to do a "visa-run" by going to the border, then come back. We did a visa run today from Bangkok to Cambodian border (Poipet), then come back on the same day. Here's the Thai immigration office, fast and efficient, air-conditioned too, the Cambodian side was much worse, hot, slow (1.5 hours wait), and we feel lucky that we can come back to Bangkok.

試踏單車 First test run

買了一輛自行車,從曼谷踏到去阿育陀城,來回共147公里,踏車後幾乎走不到路。 Life in Bangkok is really good and me and Pazu love this city very much, we're learning Thai now with some slow progress, but Thai is more phonetically similar to Cantonese (our native tongue) and it seems to be easier to get people understand us than in Vietnam. People here are very friendly, we have a good time especially at the Thailand Cycling Club, people are very helpful, and we bought a mountain bike and a trailer, I'll show you more pictures later. The first "long" test run was from Bangkok to Ayutthaya (total 147km), Pazu almost couldn't walk after getting off the bike, but for me Kong Junior the Little Bear, I enjoyed the hitch.
