just found your blog and am loving it. regarding the dogs: it's quite common for wats to be feeding stations for strays, and/or for people to drop unwanted puppies, etc. off for the monks to take care of. in BKK and further south, there are animal-rescue groups (of civilians) based at some of the wats, but they are based there because the dogs were there already...


Maryn, I found this blog about a year ago. It is perhaps the most well-written blog I've experienced. I don't know this couple, but look forward to each and every entry. You'll have a wonderful time going through the archives.


Hi again! I know I usually "see" you guys on Flickr but I thought I'd just chime in here and let you know that I'm really enjoying reading about your trip to Asia!


Wow - thanks so much, you guys! For the information and the compliments!

Maryn, on eatingasia I saw a little information about a dog rescue in Chiang Mai as well. That clears up why the wats were so full of dogs!

Rooney, I'm blushing! That's high praise!

Su-lin, thank you! I'm going to have to go check out your blog - I haven't had the opportunity to visit it!
