We’ve just been away on holiday in Phuket, Thailand, meeting up with family members. The children loved swimming in the pool, digging in the sand on the beautiful beaches, playing with their cousins and eating the delicious food. We also tried to teach them a bit about Thai culture by visiting a local temple, Wat Sawang Arom. They were fascinated by the Buddha statues covered in gold, and the stories told on the temple walls. They saw the beehive like structure where fire crackers are let off for chasing evil spirits away, and they spotted some Buddhist monks dressed in orange cloth so we talked about how their lives are governed by a set of rules. The children all asked lots of questions!
