I don't wanna be too elaborate on this. I have already made up a 55 min film on my trip to Thailand 8 months ago (March 2008), but I don't mind sharing some of those moments here on this journal. Next time I promise to write on my journeys in real time and not some months after. I'm gonna divide these Thai photos in posts!
Here are some 4 not-so-intimate pics from me and two of my fellow chums (Mohammad and Mehrdad) as we took them wandering around the Thai cosmos.
This is our hotel The Menam Riverside and the picture you see is the front yard pool, we did a lot of swimming and drifting over here. Very heavenly indeed.
Language is possibly your weakest link when traveling to East Asia and in addition to that, this shop owner is least likely to attract any tourism as we'll probably never find out what this mysterious shop was about. What the hell are they selling?
It's not really far from reality: Thailand is the country of smiles. Look at the colors to find that out for yourself. The city was unbelievably alive. Maybe that's the point according to Dalai Lama:
I believe that the very purpose of life is to be happy. From the very core of our being, we desire contentment. In my own limited experience I have found that the more we care for the happiness of others, the greater is our own sense of well-being. Cultivating a close, warmhearted feeling for others automatically puts the mind at ease. It helps remove whatever fears or insecurities we may have and gives us the strength to cope with any obstacles we encounter. It is the principal source of success in life. Since we are not solely material creatures, it is a mistake to place all our hopes for happiness on external development alone. The key is to develop inner peace.
I'll be back with more Thai stuff.
p.s. Enjoy my new music player on the journal.
Thank you 8Tracks!
