A visit from a monk

This weekend Kob has organised a Buddhist meditation weekend.   She invited a monk and some of her friends over for the weekend.    They arrived on Friday and have spent the weekend meditating, praying to Buddha and learning from the Monk.    They will stay another night and go home on Sunday.

Today I participated in some of the prayers, gave an offering of food to the monk and later in the afternoon had a chat with him (with Kobs help to translate the bits I didn’t understand).        It was quite an interesting day, I am glad I got back to Bangkok in time for it!
