Turning Point

Temple Scene, originally uploaded by Robbi Baba.

On the Sunday after I'd been so sick, I was again visiting the Walking Street Market, but was having more trouble enjoying myself. I didn't dare eat all the yummy food this time, and there were just throngs of people (I really felt I was in Asia!) and I hadn't much energy for shopping--the effort of haggling was beyond me.
So I was feeling a little jaded, I suppose, when I ventured into this temple's grounds and came across this scene of the Buddha under the tree.
There were people standing silently and of course many taking photos. For me it was a turning point. I was suddenly VERY happy to be in Thailand again. And this spiritual uplift stayed with me to the end of my trip.
