.

Small Thai town that our village is attached to celebrated a Buddhist holiday.Nearly 250 monks took part as Thais filled the Alms Bowls full of food.

Soon as the bowl filled up [about every 5 steps] the monks turned and emptied it in to a large bag which was replaced by another large bag etc..

It is boiling hot out and all the monks are bare foot while walking on asphalt road.

The people are big time happy when this type of activity takes place. Giving to the monks makes good merit with Buddha, way good mojo...;-)
