By 5:00 AM I was strolling down the street to check out what was going on in the area of Wat Mai. It was a great way to stretch my legs and see things that I might otherwise not be able to witness standing at one spot.

People were gathering along the path already and a few people from the village told me their temple (Wat Mai) starts earlier than the other temples. The temple has a few monks so the procession only takes a few minutes.
