IT'S LYNNY KANSAS
DON'T LET THE RUBY SLIPPERS,
OR THE DOROTHY INSPIRED NICKNAME
FOOL YOU., THERE'S NO PLACE LIKE HOME,
BUT TRAVELING IS FUN.
On our first trip to this Northern Thai City, the words Wat and Chedi became oh so familiar. In Chiang Mai it seems, there is a "Wat" with it's accompanying "Chedi" around nearly every corner. I have to admit to looking up these words in the dictionary so I would be better able to recognize which was "Wat" and what was Chedi! A Wat is a Buddhist monastry or temple, a Chedi (also known as a Stupa) is a "bell shaped tower or mound like structure containing Buddhist relics", Buddhism being the predominant religion in Thailand.
