Amazed and fascinated

Opulence in gold.


2.   Monks in saffron robes

Intriguing ceremonies

The culture lives on…

  1. Hi Cynthia,
    It is such a beautiful county. I have some wonderful memories. You and your camera will do it justice!

  2. Hi Lea, I agree, Thailand is such a charming country with a fascinating religion and history blending into one remarkable culture, it feels like I’m treading on golden fairy land.

  3. I am envious of you my friend, i always wanted to visit there, so i can take in all of the temples…one day maybe in the future! Beautiful picture…you had to be in awe! I glad you had a beautiful trip!

    • Thank you Wendell! It was splendid and awesome! You also have to admire the people for not stealing all those gold inside the temples. And the food was great, nothing tastes bland, everything leaves a remarkable flavor on the taste buds!

  4. Wonderful Haiku and amazing photo, Cynthia! I have never been, but would love to, someday! xx

  5. It is one special tourist destination that has many exciting itineraries to offer, I was blessed to have feasted on the best. 🙂

  6. These haiku from your trip are all so vivid, Cyththia–you really bring us with you!

  7. beautiful Ku’s and photo , Cynthia . Thailand is simply a great country to visit, I loved it!

    Ciao, Francina

  8. I couldn’t read this post because of the white on yellow. Anyway I did it, difficulty. I love your poems and will follow you. I’m not a poet, but I read very much, poems and romances, classic and modern. My blog is on archeology, and soon on occultism, esotherism, the limit between science and faith. I would say God bless you, so I say. But …. Church must change!!!! Have you ever been in Rome?? If you come here let me know. Lovely yours, Giuseppe.

    • Thank you Giuseppe, I also love your delightful posts, even if my Italian vocabulary is limited. I visited Italy a few years ago enjoying Rome and the Tuscany regions particularly. I missed Venezia and Milan reserved for my next visit maybe next year. God bless you too, and I hope you’ll find peace and happiness with God even if you don’t seem to be particularly happy with your Church. Stay well!
