A little Thai girl waits patiently at a street vendors stall. She has money in her hand and she leans against the pole, as tourists push in to purchase a pastry that is being cooked. The pastry once cooked is drowned in sweet condensed milk.
This photo was taken at the Wat Phra Yai, which is known as the Big Buddha Temple at Bo Phut on Koh Samui. The Temple was built in 1973 and is extremely touristy. There was nothing spiritual about the place; it just seemed as if everyone was trying to make a dollar by selling something to the tourist trade.
Bo Phut is situated on a quiet bay on the north of Samui. The Fisherman’s Village has an eclectic array of bars, eateries, boutique shops and has a distinctive Mediterranean feel.
My memory of this temple was the children. They did not have allot but they played with simple things that they found on the streets. It reminded me of my childhood in Sri Lanka.
