The Province of Surin is almost completely flat, but there is one Granite outcrop about mid-way between Surin City and Prasat City, about 30 minutes drive from our house.
On top of the hill is a giant, white, concrete Buddha statue and, on the steps leading up to the top, there is an installation of 1080 Bronze Bells...probably the largest collection in Thailand. Visitors are encouraged to coax a "dong" out of each bell, using the commemorative wooden hammers that are sold at the bottom of the steps, on the way up and down, and the sound is very pleasant. Naomi is a musician, so I hoped she would enjoy this installation, and it seemed to be so.
