Nesting of the swan

As we walked around the island, we came across this swan nesting her eggs. We made sure we did not go too close as they might leave the nest if you go too near the nest.

New Beginnings!

 Live birds are purchased in the market and to be are released for cosmic merit. Thai people believe that emissions are released in live birds and fish. Releasing them you  are considered for forgiveness. Or so we were told by the locals.

While visiting a small island in Koh Yao Noi we saw these men in the market buying “forgiveness” a new beginning…
