I am a retired English teacher living in Thailand.
Interests: Buddhism, reading, writing, travelling, anthropology, asian cultures.
This site aims to illustrate something that I became aware of after visiting many Buddhist temples and monasteries — that they are not all the same, though they may seem so to the weary traveller. They share many features but each reflects the particular interests of the founding abbot and his followers, and the local people who have supported them over the years. Undoubtedly, they also reflect the wealth or lack of it of those supporters.
