One week in

Been in Thailand for one week now, and I’m enjoying it quite well. I’ve walked into a tiger cage, fed an elephant, seen a few different waterfalls, driven a motorbike into the mountains on one of the windiest roads in the world, walked the night market, explored the jungle, slept in my hammock outside a bungalow next to the river at Pai, seen a million temples and images of bodhisattvas, attended the lady-boy cabaret, and ate at a Thai barbecue. 297 more words

And cuts free from all suffering

And those endowed with many sorrows.”
