Today was a pretty intense day for me, not only am I half way around the world away from my family and friends but this morning I had to leave the comfort of the SMRT group that I have become so fond of to travel 12 hours away from. I am now in Khorat with my Ajarn and her two students in a place where not one person speaks english, staying in a cabin in the woods. Yet I find myself intrigued by the unknown, the food, culture and people are different than those I came across in Bangkok or Chiang Mai, there are no tourist here just people living their day to day lives the markets are less crowed and friendly and there is a since of piece in the air. I can not wait to see what this week has in store in me. Not only will I get to play with fossils but I will have to dig deep within myself and find my inner peace.
