I think I will skip telling about the temples. They were extremely cool and we walked barefoot through thousand year old temples but you can google the info or look through my pictures to get a good grasp of that.

What I would like to tell you about is the Children's Home we visited. Billy had a contact with a Madam here who ran a home for children and he secured us an invite to come play with the children.

After arriving through the gate, there were a group of girls playing in a little entrance area. I actually am not going to talk much, Ill just post some videos for now.

Here was the greetings we got... [

Here are some kids [

Explanation about where the kids came from and where they are going.. [

Me playing with one of the babies [

And if all that did not give you the "feels", here is the Owner of the Children's home blessing us with shaws for coming to see the kids... [

It was an amazing experience, hard to stomach, but I did leave knowing that the
kids were loved by the owner. Billy if you are reading this, I am super sorry I forgot her name. {one cute story, while we were playing with the 6-8 year olds, they were jumping off a table into our arms, and all of a sudden a lady came into the room and they ran to her like any kid would to their mother. It turns out, that was the owner, and she loved those kids with every bit of her heart.}

Thanks for reading this far, congratulations if you made it all the way-- More stories coming up, Snake farm, Alligator pit, and more crazy fun.

I have gotten home !
Was filtering through the things I got home with and found your TB card. Looked you up. What are the advantages to TB over FB or Photobucket?

FB vs TB vs Photobucket
This keeps things for me in chronological order, and lets me post pictures that i want to highlight, and add more that people can go through if they feel like it. Also it's a good outlet for sensory memories for me. Facebook I just seem to get annoyed with "likes" and normally you can't tell a long story because there are not enough text spaces. As far as Photobucket, I'll use it to "photodump" so all my photos are backed up somewhere.
