An interesting read and I for one didn't realize that Thailand had schools that catered specifically for training young monks, a kind of western world apprenticeship. Young prospective monks playing computer games...the world and commercialism bites deep into even the most protected of establishments, and why not. The murals from around the mid 1850's are certainly worth a look and from your photos you can see the emphasis on respect, music and culture. Thailand must have been an amazing place back in those days, I've always had an interest in the past and Thailand in those days, country life mostly so, would have been an eye opener and a lesson in life for even the hardest of souls. Thanks for the read.
