  Monks in BKK
by sabrina_florida

Before travelling to Thailand, we read so many not-to-dos with monks! We read for example, that women can't talk to them directly, but through a man. Once we were in a wat (temple) and one of them came to talk to us. Some other time, we saw one of them smoking while enjoying the afternoon breeze. Maybe things have started to change!
You will see them early in the morning walking in the streets with a bag, collecting food and other everyday things from people.
