After hanging out at Tou Ya Nou Khao’s place and having young coconut for snack, I was ready to go check out Wat Houaylao. The elderly ladies were busy making kong boun for Boun Oka Phana.
Tou Ya Nou Khao would be spending a couple of nights at the temple with her Mair Khao friends. She is the boss of this temple if you can call her that. When there is a boun, she would be there to give orders and she is also at the temple everyday to take care of the daily duties. At 80’s something she is very active and having the time of her life being productive and serving her community.
It was lunch time and a few ladies were preparing food for the Buddhist Monks at the temple. This was a signal for me to head home and to take some photos of the cooking by my relatives.
