Cave 1

Buddha 1

Tham Kao Lang is a big natural cave near Petchaburi, which is used as a Buddhist temple. I’m not sure how many Buddha images were scattered in every nook and cranny of this amazing stalactite cave but there must have been over a hundred.

As we were wandering about the cave, we were approached by a very excited Thai who asked if he can take a picture with us. We agreed so he just sat down in between us, had a friend take some pictures of all of us. Scenes like this have happened repeatedly while we were in Asia. I’ve had my picture taken with entire groups of students, large families, couples or just single people. We don’t know them, they don’t know us but they all asked for a picture. Somebody once told me that is has something to do with luck but I am still somewhat baffled by it. Does anybody have any theories? I guess it’s fair though. We take pictures of their houses and sometimes of them so they take some pictures of us too. ;)

    1. Danke :) Die Höhle war auch wirklich beeindruckend. Ich glaube der blaue Effekt entsteht durch den ganzen Rauch der Räucherstäbchen in der Luft.
