Looking Back

Lately it seems that I haven’t been able to get Thailand out of my mind.  The two and a half years that were spent there meant a lot to me and I met some really amazing people.  Thai people have a culture that is rich with beliefs and this photograph illustrates just that.  On every boat in Thailand you will find a similar display at the front of it, and it is not just for decoration.! Flowers and ribbons at the front of the longtail are believed to provide a safe journey for the boat.  I suppose some could right this off as superstition, but to be honest it is refreshing to see a culture so devoted to continuing tradition.  I can’t wait to bring my whole family to visit our extended family in Thailand so that they can see for themselves what this amazing culture has to offer!
