The last part of 2014 in Thailand 🙂 Pala U is a national park on the Burmese/Thai border full of waterfalls and swim spots. Nine of us packed ourselves into the back of a tuk-tuk, drank a few beers, and spent the day at this beautiful swimming hole. The fish were huge and I had fun throwing fish food at who ever was in the water so the fish would swarm them! The temple at Khao Takiab is my absolute favorite! Each time I go I discover something different. My friend, Helen, introduced me to the “Buddha Cemetery” which is the home to fallen Buddha (and other religious) statues – because – of course – they cannot be thrown away!
Helen from Norway, Bao from Minnesota, Aisha from Malaysia, and I all danced bollywood style together for our college “culture night”. I’m an absolutely terrible dancer but I’m grateful for the experience and the girls!
