Hi Retro, actually I've never been to those countries, but as I heard from some of my friends, people in Thailand are so warm and friendly (they smile
a lot). There are a lot of temples, golden stupas, and other Buddhist architectures. Since 95% of Thailand's population is Buddhist, pindapata is not only done in events like Vesak or Kathina (like in my country), but pindapata is a part of daily life. And I believe it's also done in other Buddhist country as well. Monks could be seen in public places like markets, walk around the streets, just like ordinary people, and they even smoke
is smoking allowed?
Well, I think we just should come and see ourselves, ehipassiko
