The experience served as a delightful introduction to a fascinating culture. Friendly people, enchanting history, glorious food, smiling climate.
I accompanied university officials and language scholars on one visit to a university campus. Our Thai hosts welcomed us with native dishes and fruit, served as a traditional Thai ensemble performed. After lunch we went outdoors to feed the animals. The campus trees in this case were populated by monkeys, not squirrels.
I will be processing the photos from this visit for a while. Watch for them at my gallery.
