Travelogue on Thailand

Bayon Temple at Angkor Thom

 

On traveling to Southeast Asia and similar climes—note to self for future trips: No jackets or dress clothes are necessary. Leave the suit at home next time to make room for more return-trip loot! Thailand is tropical, so loose-fitting clothes and comfortable shoes are the rule of the day.

Another note to self: Open eyes and mind to new ideas, religions and customs. To be well-traveled is a blessing. Increased perception is a gift more lasting and important than any souvenir I may bring back home.
