Behind Glass

28 Aug

It is a sunny Sunday afternoon, yet unfortunately I can only experience the outside world from behind a looking-glass.

In fear of putting my immune system in any more danger, I stay in and rest.

I am still sorting through the pictures I had taken over the last couple of days.

The Business program at Chulalongkorn University held a special Welcome Party, for all of the exchange students.
We all gathered together and enjoyed learning a bit more about each others’ cultures.

The tables were separated by country/region. Of course I found myself sitting beside the American girls.

Once again I can’t help but get a shot of her gorgeous eyes.

It was by far the largest portions we had received since landing into Thailand.
The Americans defiantly took advantage of it.

A food baby developed in almost all of our stomachs.

We learned a traditional Swedish Spring time dance, that had everyone up on their feet.

The French awed us all with their amazing singing talents.

The Aussies showed us what planking was all about.

The Thai students all had quite the camera setups. I was no match for their great Bodies, Lenses, or even their flashes.

A great night with good friends and amazing food. What else could one ask for?

 

I will conclude the post with a quote from one of my favorite books.

“The past cannot remember the past. The future can’t generate the future. The cutting edge of this instant right here and now is always noting less than the totality of everything there is”
