kokody Temple On A Glass Cliff. This is the most elaborate temple I've seen in Thailand. This is only one of the statues, there's 2 more temples not pictured. It's taken 11 years to build and there's still work being done to it. Below this statue is housing for 4,000 people when disaster relief is needed. Nothing for the temple was purchased, everything was donated and all the work was done by volunteers. It's pretty crazy to see how connected this whole country is through Buddhism. 3d
  •   kokody @mottamelon the funguys are coming don't chu worry. The elephant riding here is not so good unfortunately. Most of the elephants in thailand are really mistreated. They use iron rods to hit them to perform and they're chained up when they aren't working :( 3d

kokody Bangkok as seen from the tallest abandoned building in the world. This building was supposed to be a luxury living high rise but production stopped because of a financial crisis. Now you can walk up all 49 deserted stories and see how big of a city you're really in. 5d
  •   kokody @weasley59 yeah easy to access, the past few years it's gotten a bit more regulated since there were a few deaths but if you show up around 5 you pay this dude and he'll let you in. There will be a small group out front waiting but the place is so big you don't really see anyone else til you get to the top 4d
  •   kokody @danielhan thanks 4d
  •   richbacon Rad shot and digging the back story behind it. 4d

  •   richbacon @kokody hey thanks! I appreciate it. We skated together back in the day in SD. I was filming with Truman and we met up with you AZ dudes for the day. I remember you ollied a set that had one of those bumpy patches put in front of it to block skating in Oceanside. Small world. 4d

kokody Out take from the project I'm currently working on. These women lived in a decrepit house in a Chinese village. This was their kitchen where they were drinking beer and cooking a noodle dish I've never seen before. It's a strange feeling approaching groups of people out here knowing that communication between you and them is verbally impossible. It usually involves me walking up and smiling, trying to say some words in Thai and sounding ridiculous, maybe a couple English words, laughing, then me pointing to my camera and giving them the OK sign with my hands to see if they're alright with me photographing them. Sometimes they're more than happy and other times it's quite the opposite. I've had people invite me into their homes for beers and food and I've also had people cover their face and turn away when they see my camera. It's led to me meeting and (trying to) talking to a lot of people I otherwise never would have. 1w

kokody Living in Thailand has been one of the most difficult things I've ever done. I had no idea what I was getting into when I decided to come out here and teach. For the past 4 months my entire world has been flipped upside down and I've had some very good days along with just as many very bad days. I thought I would come out here and have a really meaningful job, eat a bunch of curry and pad thai and be hiking, kayaking, surfing and doing my other usual activities outside in my free time. I couldn't have been more wrong. Just about everything you take for granted in the U.S. is a challenge here and something as simple as ordering food or telling a student to sit down can be an insanely frustrating experience. With that being said, struggle comes with reward and I'm very proud of @lilahlou_ and myself for sticking it out this far. I've learned a lot about myself, met some great people, traveled to beautiful places, seen the best and worst of a different culture and it's been an incredibly eye opening experience. It hasn't been easy, and we still have 6 weeks left here but the light at the end of the tunnel is now in sight. And at the end of the day, we always have really, really nice sunsets. 2w
