Photographer's Note

Two monks grill hambugers at their temple in Pai, Thailand.

Many of the larger and even not so large temples around Thailand have ladies that do cooking for the monks in residence.

This small temple in Thailand however was a do it yourself operation.

I had been out for some early coffee and was walking down the path to my quarters when I saw these monks grilling up what appeared to be hambergers in preparation for their breakfast.

Pai has a few temples and the monks in this area are very inquisitive and interested in visitors, and will take quite a bit of time to hang out with you and show you around if you have the mind to do so.

You may be asked to worship the Buddha here in Pai (get down on your knees) in exchange for getting to know them a bit better.
