Novice Monks at the temple have collected their food for the mid-day meal, and are off to find a comfortable place to eat it. The monk on the left of the image is Nong Plaeng...Na's nephew...who often stays with us.
Thailand's Buddhist Monks eat twice each day:
First...at about 0400, they are woken, and eat a simple meal of rice porridge, before commencing morning chants followed by alms gathering, and then various tasks of housekeeping.
Second...at about 1130, they consume a substantial meal, which has to be sufficient for the rest of the day and the night.
