Thursday I had the opportunity to do some fun community stuff with my school, as all of the students and most of the teachers went to the Wat associated with our school to honor the dead.  Sala Ga-pat isn't a set date, like Valentine's Day, but follows the Thai horoscope, like Thanksgiving for us.  It's a day to give buckets of food, personal items, money, anything a monk might find useful, with a tree on top, to the monks of your local Wat to honor the spirits of dead people.  It was great to go with my teacher friends and do something in the community, and we had a great time!

It is amazing to me how many students are enriched by your work with them. Beautiful images of amazing work. You must be very busy.
