Asia Why Travel

Sunrise in Koh Rong. Inspirational. 

A truly Inspiring sunrise, well worth wetting the bed for, colours turning the sand molten, fishing boat slowly chugging across the horizon under a quickly rising morning sun. Perhaps more importantly the simple gift of a witnessing a slice another real culture. Listening to a monk saying prayers as they collect morning almes. They tell me in Buddhism, alms is the mark of respect given by a lay Buddhist to a Buddhist monk or holy person. It is not seen as simple charity as as we in the west would normally presume but rather to show humbleness and respect in the presence of the monks holistic secular society. Connecting the person to what the monk represents spiritually.
