One of the things I love most about Asia…the food markets. This is local market in Patong, Phuket.

As a Mahayana Buddhist practitioner, I would love to atetnd this carnival/festival type celebration. According to your blog, it features most of my favorite things art, music, spirituality, games, shopping and the fact that it’s free to the public is icing on top of the cake. I WANT TO GO!!! ha ha.
