Escaping the misery. I remind myself of those living in hardship.


This time, my visit to Bangkok seems dazed. I can’t seem to control my emotions, there are too many things running in my mind. However the sight of friends and the slums remind me of my sanity, I cannot abandon the sensations of my travel. I pushed aside the daze, and focus on what is important to me » life of the poor, the hardship of those who seek a betterment to their lives and an escape to misery.
