I forget what this is.

A Stupa perhaps?

I was thoroughly STUPAFIED by the end of this trip.

I know everyone else walked around it while I bought a book in the kiosk.

Then we headed off to a Museum. Very nice, very small. I lasted about ten minutes inside & went outside to buy a drink. I was unsuccessful with that but did see some interesting stuff on the street ...

A short bus ride brought us to this old wall. Not the Great Wall but pleasant nevertheless.

and a stroll through the night market on the way back to the boat.

Lots of locals out eating & I tried some of the food on offer. Not bad - a little greasy & most slipped out of my fingers on to the floor.

Here's Barbara again, with the ever present couple of cameras ..

That is the lady cooking the food I bought. Chicken I think - I hope.
