Another wave of monks comes by

I was amazed at the sheer number of monks participating in the tak bat alms receiving ritual. I was told that they do this twice a day- at 05:30 and at 11:30, and they will eat what they have collected during these two sessions, nothing else. As one lot of monks has already gone past, the number of tourists seems to be more than the faithful. Note the lady keeping a respectable distance as she photographs the monks.
