Monks and their Cell Phones



At Monk Chat in Chiang Mai, the monks were much more interested in getting a photo of CAM than of BigB. It turns out that BigB just had to wait for his moment of glory: these monks in Labrang Monastery, China couldn’t get enough of his freckles and blue eyes.

Head on over to DeliciousBaby for more travel-themed Friday photo fun.

About wandermom

". . .life is short and the world is wide" - Simon Raven I'm not sure I've ever consciously planned a trip based on this sentiment, but it definitely influences my subconscious! I've been traveling as frequently and widely as possible since I finished school. And I love it. I love the research, the planning, the fervent packing and the curiosity of exploring somewhere I've never been before. My husband & I are both Irish - as in born-in-Ireland. But we live in Seattle. We have two boys: wild, boisterous, regular boys. So, since becoming a Mom, I've been a WanderMom. Given our slightly-unusual family situation, routine "visits-to-Grandma" are international trips requiring passports, 10hr-flights and (oh joy!) airport transfers. I have rants, raves and opinions about how, where & why to travel with kids (start them as young as you can, I say!). I hope to learn even more by researching topics which other wandermoms may be interested in reading about on this blog. Passports, pacifiers, diapers and gameboys at the ready - off we go!

    When we visited Tibet the monks (and regular Tibetans too) were fascinated with Joel’s beard. At one monastery, a monk gave it a good scruffing while barking “ruff, ruff, ruff” at Joel…not sure what that was all about but it’s not every day your beard is given a good scritch by a monk!
