Thai Buddhism Day at SOAS June 2016

In order to celebrate the Buddha's birthday this week, 14 year 8 students spent the day at SOAS university learning about Thailand and Buddhism.  The day covered many aspects of Thai culture including an introduction of Thai language (as well as how to avoid offending people when you introduce yourself, which is easily done!), an taste of Thai cooking, instruction on how to meditate and an insight into the ghosts and spirits which creep into daily life in Thailand.
