Hundreds of Monks depart from their various temples to walk down the main street collecting prepared food such as sticky rice from locals who have lined the streets. You can also see children kneeling with baskets in hopes that the monks will share some of their collected alms so they can take food ...
... But don't eat the wings. I asked if that was because the wings get stuck between your teeth, but either the sales girl could not understand or a reply was beneath her. Before venturing out for the tickets, and whilst sitting outside watching the rain and flying ants, a maid came and gesticulated at us with a feather duster and spray can. Realising that she had no desire to dust us off and give us a delousing, we ushered her in to the room behind us with much ...
