I wasn’t planning on visiting the 9/11 Memorial during my short stay in New York, but on my final day I spent five minutes in passing. The energy and the crowd was unlike any other during my visit, there was complete stillness and quiet.
I was young and didn’t know anyone personally affected by the event. I cannot say I know what the families and friends must have went through.
I’m now glad I decided to spend that moment with the hundreds of others paying their respects.

The most striking feature at Wat Lokayasutharam in Ayutthaya is the giant reclining Buddha known as Phra Buddhasaiyart. At 37 meters long and 8 meters high.

The head is resting on a lotus and at the opposite end of the body, the legs and feet overlap squarely. The area at ground level beneath the head is covered in tiny squares of gold-leaf which have been paced there by people making merit. Flowers and incense are also presented as offerings. Phra Buddhasaiyart has been restored on a number of occasions in modern times. Most recently, the flooding of late 2011 caused some cosmetic damage which the Department of Fine Arts has now repaired.
