Traditionally only men are allowed to work in the tanneries. The leather products were amazing, but I'll never forget that smell! Rotting meat. They offered mint to shoppers, to suppress it, didn't quite do the trick..
The Chak Prah Festival: I stumbled upon it on my way to the Thai islands. It was about 1km long, the monks were collecting offerings in buckets- they weren't allowed to touch the women either. So fascinating!!!
Visited my awesome cousin who was finishing his internship, we took many trains across German countryside & were rewarded in kind. (Obviously my cousin was doubly blessed- also reveling in the pleasure of my company )
