“I’m here at Wat Mai Monastery in Laos during the Bun Pi Mai or Lao’s New Year Celebration. For three days only, they bring the revered statue of Buddha, the Pha Bang, back to its home from the Royal Collection for prayer and celebration. I’m hoping to get a lead on a small emerald Buddha that would be ideal for a necklace by Michelle, rather like the one I’m wearing. Got to go!” Jade
