Daily Prompt: Study Abroad
If you were asked to spend a year living in a different location, where would you choose and why?
I would choose South East Asia. For it would allow me to explore part of the world that is my heritage. Also it would allow me to spend some time in countries that take different paths in following the Buddha‘s teachings. From India through Nepal, Tibet, Bhutan, Myanmar, Thailand, Singapore, Cambodia, Vietnam, Thailand, Honk Kong, Taiwan, China, Japan and Korea, I would choose Thailand. Being fairly centrally located in the region, and it would allow me to indulge in dishes such as, Pad Thai, Pad See Ew, the three types of curries, Tom Kha Kai soup, fresh Durian, and many others. If possible I would take the temporary ordination at a Wat, for the spring rainy season. This is for three months, and would allow me to experience life, as a monk.
