For those of you planning a visit to Thailand, here is a tip you will not read about. Get out of bed early, go to the street and you will see another side of Thailand, the spiritual side. Every morning monks walk barefoot along the streets and the Thais offer them food. This food that is collected is the only food they will eat all day. Families, after offering food, will kneel in front of the monks and Pali chanting of prayers fills the air. It is a magical sight and oh so Thai.

The coloured bands of cloth around the tree give respect to the spirit of the tree. (5 years and 595 days ago)

Good description of what you took,not sure the movement of the monks tell a story though,think would have them in detail,but maybe wrong in this.

I just trying something a bit different because we see so many regular monk photos so wanted to see how this one does in the ratings. Thank you again for your comments.
