Hi Bill,

Not Vietnam, but close enough in the feelings
you capture that make me quite homesick.
And your photography has feelings.
Whatever you were doing in Thailand, you were
very close to the people for sure.  And it's wonderful
that you still have the negatives from that time.
You were that close to the kids, and they were not clamoring
around you.
Is that a cigarette in the monk's hand, or a pen ?
Ah, the rain.  The things that makes you homesick often
are not what you might guess at first.

Excellent and varied composition (I am taking notes) in
many of them.

Long ago and far away, indeed.  Thanks for posting.
