Floral donation for Buddha. As I passed in front of a temple in Chiang Mai I saw this believer donate a flower as a sign of faith.
In a Buddhist temple I have been impressed by this lady who prayed with special intensity. Buddhist practice in the incense sticks are used to ward off evil spirits.

A load of faith... for who is looking for that. A group of young monks playing around a temple in Chiang Mai.

A trip with a monk.. Sukhothai is a famous touristy spot in Thailand for the presence of the beautiful ruins of the ancient empire of Sukhothai. Also monks don't miss the opportunity to visit this important archaeological site and get some photos as memory... like anyone else.
