After descending from the summit of the Tiger Cave Temple, I noticed this woman sitting with her back to the entrance. She sat with a small container before her, waiting for donations. No one had so much as looked at her when I came over and gave her 20 baht. The light in her fading eyes brightened if only for a moment.
We had two flat tires in one day. The second one was on the outskirts of town far from anything in sight, yet some kind locals called a mechanic and within 20 minutes we had a new tube and were back on the road.
Here is the view from Monkey Mountain in Da Nang, where Buddha overlooks the city.
