The Land Where the Sacred Meets the Sublime
Three days in Thailand, and I still did not have a theme for my story about this colorful country. As I was contemplating in a bus from Chiang Rai to Chaing Mai, I saw a golden statue of Buddha on a hill. I found my story in that moment; it had to be about Buddha.
From the mountains of Pai in the north to the beaches of Pattaya in the south, one thing was consistent: Buddha. Form, color, size kept changing, but the same peace was prevalent everywhere I went. It was a 15 day odyssey in the Buddha universe.
