The best way I've found to expand my mind is interacting with people unlike me. Challenging my beliefs and prejudices happens at an accelerated pace when I'm the only one in the room who thinks like me.


Stuff I blog about: Ethnography, Entropy Conservation, Travel, Buddhist Philosophy, Photography, Philanthropy, Nomadic Living.

no words necessary…

the behind the scenes on YouTube are worth watching

Wat Yai Chiamonokhon in Ayutthaya (just outside Bangkok, Thailand)  The sitting Buddhas in the main courtyard were really cool to walk  amongst.  They lined all four walls of the courtyard and it took me the  better part of an hour to walk past them all.

I took this pic at the Monkey Forest Temple in Ubud, Bali.  The local Hindu people built this temple deep in the jungle where the monkeys like to hang out.  I visited it a lot when I lived there in 2008.  These mom and their babies were sleeping together and it was so tranquil to watch them.  I have a zillion pictures of these guys and this is among my favorites.
