Today we went searching for a Yoga Studio. On the way we went through a great shopping market which was held on the grounds of one of the hundreds of temples here (some of the temples date back to the 1300’s_ – Annie was in her element.
We never found the Yoga Studio, but we passed a few temples among the way…
(We didn’t see this scene, but I loved the photo and took a shot of it)
In one of the temples, there was a table filled with singing bowls… in which people would drop donations –
This statue of Buddha on a hill, under the tree… and reflecting in the water… caught our eyes –
Annie fit right in radiating in her own way –
I don’t think I was allowed to take this photo, but everyone was taking photos and the Monks didn’t seem to care –
These Monks never moved… After a while I realized why –
On the walk home shopping never left us
These items caught my eye –
I can pass almost any shop here, but this Fairy Tale shop was like a magnet for me.
Annie does all they buying (that makes both of us happy). Even here I couldn’t decide to buy anything, but tomorrow I think I’m returning with the credit card.
Sunday we signed up for a Thai cooking class. We begin early, going to the organic farm to gather the ingredients, then coming back to prepare the dishes (each “chef” get his/her own wok). When it’s ready in the evening we get to eat.

I would love to see these photos clearly, they are uploading very blurry- What a wonderful trip!
I don’t understand…. I’m looking at the posting page and the photos look sharp enough (I’m looking on the computer).
