Today was my history day. I walked down to the war cemetery and walked around for a while. I also went into the adjacent museum, which was surprisingly good. It opened my eyes as to how the Japanese treated POWs. There was an uplifting photo in the collection: a British POW had a pair of earphones stuck into a brush’s head. They used to collect bits and bobs to make radios without their captures knowing. They used to call them ‘canaries’ and the batteries ‘birdseed’.

You may also download “world-tour-2007-07-14.geojson” directly or view “world-tour-2007-07-14.geojson” on GitHub Gist (you may need to manually checkout the “main” branch).

I then walked up the road to the famous The Bridge On The River Kwai bridge and walked over it. There was an elephant on the other side of the bridge so I went and said hello to. I have booked myself on a trip to Tiger’s Temple for tomorrow afternoon. In the morning I’ll check if (and when) there are any (non-tourist) buses to Chang Mai.

These internet cafés are starting to get on my nerves, the computers are hacked, buggy, infected and usually unstable. I have lost count of the amount of times a PC has crashed whilst I have been typing and consequently lost everything. I might start typing less and just wait until I get home and do it all then, at least I’ll then have a PC which works!
