With a Chinese Guardian statue outside of Wat Pho “It was beautiful and majestic. It is known for having a large statue of the reclining Buddha (I couldn’t get a good picture of it to do it justice). The first official Thai massage school started here as well.”
“My host family is very accommodating about my roommate and I’s vegetarian/vegan diet. They prepared this beautiful meal for us using plants from their garden.”
“At work I sat in on diabetes prevention patient counseling session. I really like how the nurse uses this BMI calculator. It is a great visual diagram for the patient to see how their weight and height are categorized for their health risk. “
“Bangkok’s rainy season has officially started. This is a view from a rooftop bar…you can see the rain moving in.”
“Visiting the Elephant Jungle Sanctuary in Chiang Mai. My friend and I got to feed the elephants and make their favorite treats, take a mud bath and help bathe them. It was an incredible experience! I loved the elephants. I wanted to support a humane and ethical sanctuary. This one did not allow riding.”

The world is undergoing rapid changes, with societies becoming more interconnected and environmentally aware; at the same time a more challenging global economy inspires in many a need to reach out and make a positive difference while seeking personal growth opportunities.
