A Trip to Thailand and Cambodia...

This series of pictures taken in Thailand and Cambodia in the spring of 2003 is dedicated to my friend James of Genius of Insanity. I know he will like the buddha and the monks, and that he'd like to visit those countries one day.
Yes, gents, that is a Lingam.

Wow. A picture post dedicated for moi?? How cool!!! I LOVED looking at these pictures. I especially like the stupa and the giant Buddha. Yeah, now I REALLY want to go visit. I just think it would be SO COOL to visit a country where Buddhism is the main religion. Someday I will make it to Thailand I hope.

Glad you liked it, James :)

Men in these countries often put the saffron robes on for a few years, and then return to secular life. It must be a soothing experience!

Jelly Bear and Pookie Bear, that many pixels is kinda scary when you post 400x300 or 0.1Mpxl pictures on your blog like I do...but is sure is cool!

What is a linghan?

Julie, a lingam or linga" is a phallic symbol, usually made of stone, that is worshiped in Hinduism as a stand in for Shiva, because it is not considered proper to worship an image of the god.

They are usually not very graphic, and tend to be stylized.
