  • We arrived in time for the weekend celebration of boys joining the monastery. The entire Wat Thaton Chedi complex is built going up the mountain, with large buildings and living units also for rent. The beautiful wat itself is past all of the other buildings at the top of the narrow winding road. Did you notice the photograph with the moon at the very peak of Wat Thaton Chedi? When we arrived families were praying as they walked around the temple. We arrived later at a lower building for a great party. It was the last night that the boys were spending with their families. However the boys and their families all spent that night in the lower complex. As we watch and laughed and enjoyed the happy crowd, we were offered food and cigarettes and alcohol. The boys were carried on the shoulders and transferred from one person to another as party went on. Everyone was very kind to us. It was truly a joy to be part the celebration. We left as it began to get dark and went to a hotel on the river just outside of the center of town. Since our hotel was below the celebration we heard the laughter and music and smiled as we slept.
