It is sometimes referred to as the AIDS Museum, I tend to call it AIDS Temple. Descriptively it is a buddhist hospice for AIDS patients, the largest one in Thailand. Three of us, a friend, my son and I paid Wat (temple) Phrabat Nampu in Lopburi a visit last weekend. As it is where people with AIDS go to to die, most of what we saw are not exactly the ones I'm in a hurry to show off. But if you are curious, you may want to click on a post I did days ago. Anyway, on with shots that I don't think will give anyone a coronary:
100 steps to the wat
After the climb this is where you arrive at
"View from the top" - those are bare cornfields visitors pass by on their way to the temple
Side view of the Life Museum which ironically displays mummies
A usual sight around Thai temples
The temple bell
Life is beautiful. Most of us would prefer that of course. AIDS is also real.
