Bordering Gulf of Thailand

A country of between 13.8 million people
Sharing about a brief visit to Siem Reap, Cambodia. Many ancient temple ruins such as Angkor Wat are in this area.
This is all the information I will share on this post. If you are interested in this most
ancient temple - you can look it up online.
So much information and so fascinating that I could hardly take it all in.
At this time of life it is all I can do to learn a portion of what is now my life at the edge of the woods in northern Tennessee.
I know I repeat myself many times - but I still find it amazing that a son who I raised in the South has such a love for a land far over the ocean. Oh - I wish I could visit him one time.
He has introduced me to new lands, a new culture and way of life. He is determined to learn to speak conversational Thai.
In one of our last conversations I asked what transportation he used? His answer "On every corner there are motorcycle taxis that I use on occasion because the cars are often stuck in traffic and motorcycles fly right through - though they are not very safe. But my main mode of transportation is my feet - I love walking - whatever country I may be in."
To end my post some random quotes....
There can be mindfulness in anything you do. While you are drinking a cup of water
~~Thich Nhat Hanh~~
People are so busy they don't hear the birds singing. They don't know how to appreciate the birds singing ~~Sayaaw U Jotika~~
It seems an almost winter day has returned to my woods. 32 degrees and the wind is howling.
Loving Kindness (metta) is sent to you this day....
