Holidays are fun

So Sunday was the long-planned visit to the Wat Mongkolratanaram in
Tampa. There is a weekly market with authentic Thai food. We got
there to find an enormous crowd. Turns out it was a big celebration
for Demarcation of the temple. From what I could gather, this is a
one-time event for every Buddhist temple where the members and guests
leave gifts that are buried in the foundation (more or less).
Thousands were there, from miles around and hospitality flowed.

A sneak peak for the big trip (2 weeks from today)
