I met this guy outside our guesthouse in Patong Beach one sunny morning. He was passing by, while I was busy preparing myself to step out on 40c and 70% humid reality.....

Usually budhist monks are world apart and not socialising with foreigners ''farangs'' , but NOT this guy....after exchanging nods he make himself comfortable on the chair and start conversation. His English was at the same level as my Thai unfortunately, but his calmness, happiness, willingness to help is something I will never forget . He make my day, and i will remember him for a long time,
