Earth, Sasi and I posing that the Ayudhaya Historical Park

Even though I am Thai but I was not brought up in Thailand therefore do not know Thailand as much as a normal Thai citizen do. This made me  “you are a foreigner in you home country” according to Mr. Krekel, which I believed is 100% true. However, after WWW I felt that I know a lot more than I used to in Thailand also the way I saw Thailand had change. The places that I saw and visited have each taught me Thai traditions and the way Thai people used to live and nowadays. I learnt that at the olden days when Ayudhaya was the capital city for Thailand, women that lived in the palace used soil or clay to make dolls to play with. On the day we went to Bangsai to visit the Arts and Crafts Center, our activity was to make dolls by soil like in the olden days. With this activity I learnt to be calm and gentle while sculpting a doll by using soil because by not being calm and gentle the doll could break or crack. So this activity made it very hard for me since I am an impetuous person. It was the day that I was most proud of. Also during this trip we went to many Wats which very good since my family isn’t a religious family we don’t visit Wats very often. Visiting many different Wats gave me a chance to make merits and pray. The most challenging part in this course was my endurance on walking in such a hot weather. First, I thought that I would never have the strength to walk in Thailand with a hot and humid weather but after the course I found out that I do have the endurance walking in the sun. With me knowing that I could walk had unexpectedly made me grow up because before I knew, I would never outdoors for such a long moments of time and I will be able to see interesting places closely or in detailed like walking to places. Now, I will always want to come out of the car and walk no matter if it’s outdoor or indoor. I personally thought that this course was very fun and interesting then I thought it would be since I never chose this course but I got it because the choices that I chose was all full. But now I have glad that I was put into this course for WWW because this course had taught so many things slowly without me knowing it.
