Bangkok's Culture

I have returned to Bangkok on my way to Rome this evening. I sense Buddhism makes a big impact on the culture of Bangkok. Last evening I walked down the street to see young people praying on the street corner, while dancers moved gently to the sound of the accompanying music. In the nearby Buddhist temple, middle aged men sat lotus style in meditation, undistracted by the many people passing by.
