Armchair Travelling – Thailand

Another winter week in what is effectively a national lockdown here in Brittany and the mind invariably wanders towards the departure gate, heading for sunnier climes. With the current restrictions on travel, a leaf through the pages of the memory bank must suffice for now; another vicarious journey.

  1. It will be wonderful when we can travel again. The yellow tops on the statues are glorious. What are these statues
    really called?

    1. Yes!! It certainly will ๐Ÿ™‚
      That photo is from Ayutthaya, the old capital of Siam. The statues are representations of Lord Buddha; this particular style is usually called Sukhothai (the first capital of the Thai Kingdom) and the pose is the maravijaya which is known in English as “Calling the Earth to Witness”.
