visual journal: thailand people

what can i say about the people of thailand in a brief couple of sentences? they're wonderful. relaxed, happy, genuine and real. the whole time we were visiting this country i didn't come across ONE PERSON who looked rushed or stressed or angry or bothered. i don't know what it was but in looking back i felt comforted by their presence. i didn't know their language, they didn't know mine but it worked.

like i told my mom when she asked what my favorite part of the whole trip was, the smiling faces and friendly nods yes in response to my holding up my camera in a gesture for permission to capture their lovely nature.

thank you, thailand, you've given me memories for a lifetime.
