I thought I had Tuesday planned when I got up, however that went out the window shortly after I ventured out. My plan was to go check out a couple of gyms to train at, go see Wat Po (reclining Buddha) and possibly train that afternoon. I accomplished one of the three, I did find a gym.
After looking at the gym I was about a mile from Lumpinee Stadium so I headed back in that direction, mainly because I am somewhat familiar with that area. When I came upon the stadium I noticed that all the shops were open, as opposed to the other times I was in the area. As I was walking towards the Twins shop a young boy approached me and asked me if I wanted to go inside the stadium and have a look around, I said yes. He was dressed in a red Twins Cornerman's Jacket so I figured this must be legit. I asked him if he fought and he said no that he was still training, I would guess he was about 12 years old.
As we were heading out of the stadium he asked me if I wanted to watch a fight and I told him that I was thinking about it at some point. When we were in the stadium he did make the recommendation that I should sit ringside, because you can take photos.
Before I left the stadium he told me that if I come I should plan on Friday because it is one of the better nights and then gave me a voucher. He told me his name was Pon and pointed to where he would be sitting the night of the fight, he said if I bring the voucher I would get 10% off, which would make the ticket 1800THB instead of 2000THB. I think I may try to plan on Friday to watch a fight.
Before I left the Stadium I went into the Twins and King shop to look around, I ended up picking up a couple of t-shirts after talking myself out of getting another pair of gloves. I have heard good things about the King Gloves, so maybe before I leave I will look into getting a pair.
After my tour I made my way to the Q House to get something to eat at Im Thai Noodle. After lunch I made my way back towards the hotel and stopped by a huge mall I had seen but have never been to. For those interested in shopping, Thailand is the place. I saw some jeans for under $20 and Nike Shoes that would be $90-$100 for around $60.
Well I am going to take a stab a Wat Po, have a good hump day.
