I took a train yesterday to Kanchanaburi. There was some delay at the halfway point and it took a while longer than expected. When it arrived at Kanchanaburi there was a dash of farangs (foreigners) to the nearest guesthouse. It took me about 3 or 4 tries to find one with a decent price and room. Without a real plan this morning I just set out walking in the direction of a temple that was maybe 3km away. Before the temple is a WWII cemetary commemorating some of the fallen that worked on the railway. I wasn't really planning to go to the cemetary but there were some kids playing that called me over. Being a bit skeptical I went ahead and hung out with them for a few hours and had a pretty good time just goofing around; they even showed me the caves at the temple. I'll post more photo's when I get to a better computer. Take care!
