I e-mailed Urai a few days ago, letting her know that I would be taking the 10am bus from Pai to Chiang Mai, getting me into the city at around 1pm. She told me to wait for the night bus from Chiang Mai to Ayutthaya because it would get me into Ayutthaya at around 8 or 9am, instead of late at night. So I waited in Chiang Mai for about 7 hours, skipping the 2pm bus that I could have taken.
I arrived into Ayutthaya at 4am. The bus dropped me off on the side of the road at a dimly lit “bus station”. It was really just a tiny covered area with a few benches. Not knowing what to do, I called Urai and told her that I had arrived early. She told me to go to a hotel and wait for her until 6am because it was still too early. So I paid a taxi driver to take me to a hotel, where I am now waiting in their lobby.
I am very tired.
