Pics: SF Friends 16 – Doi Suthep, #Thailand

Following Wat Umong, we had our taxi bring us on up to the fabulous and hilariously tourist-infested Doi Suthep. This is definitely along the lines of Siem Reap in terms of how congested it is. While it’s a mountain, it’s also a temple for the Buddhists, with a ton of regal gold paint that makes it look absolutely stunning. There’s also a little miniature tourism city at the bottom of a hill-tribe-children-laden stairway. The pictures will show you. First, a picture of a Dunkin Donuts that looks like it’s out of the 90s.

The sitting monk in the next couple of pics was absolutely still. On the same level of wax museums. I still don’t know if he was alive or not:
