"Thanks and thanks again to Him who offers to the man whom the sorrows of life have assaulted and left naked–offers to him the fig leaf of the Word with which he can cover his wretchedness." -Søren Kierkegaard

A Morning At Play

Posted in Day-To-Day by matt on Sunday, November 22, 2009

Located in the heart of commercial Bangkok, Wat Pathum Wanaram School is pressed between two gigantic shopping centers in the backyard of a Buddhist temple. Also surrounding it is a parking garage, an unfinished hotel (complete w/ noisy construction sounds), and a couple slum neighborhoods. So ya, things are cramped. These kids don’t have the fields for running and playing that I enjoyed, so they make do with a small courtyard.

A post about the layout of my workplace may seem a bit menial, but the familiar sounds of children playing outside my office has become an endearing part of my day, so I decided to film the little buggers as I walked in this morning.

Have a watch:

    Actually, that is pretty clam compared to an American playground. We could not have rackets in the middle of all those children. Someone would be hit for sure….

      I get whacked occasionally.
