On our first trip to this Northern Thai City, the words Wat and Chedi became oh so familiar. In Chiang Mai it seems, there is a "Wat" with it's accompanying "Chedi" around nearly every corner. I have to admit to looking up these words in the dictionary so I would be better able to recognize which was "Wat" and what was Chedi! A Wat is a Buddhist monastry or temple, a Chedi (also known as a Stupa) is a "bell shaped tower or mound like structure containing Buddhist relics", Buddhism being the predominant religion in Thailand.
WHO IS LYNNY?
My name is Lynn, Lynny or even Lynnykansas. Blame the latter on a "Dorothy" Halloween Costume and a very funny kid a number of years ago (yes, that's you Meg!). I am a Brit who has spent 16 years in the USA, but is now experiencing life in Singapore for awhile, as a "Trailing Spouse".
More about me and why the blog is called It's Lynny Kansas.......
