Yesterday, my wife and I spent the afternoon at the Sanctuary of Truth. I will be doing an in-depth post on that temple later because it was an amazing experience.

This is just a teaser photo of the Sanctuary of Truth. It is an awesome structure that is made all out of carved wood and has been under construction since 1981. It is truly one of the wonders of the world.

But, back to the dance

After touring the Sanctuary of Truth, we were treated to some traditional Thai dance performances while we waited for our rides to arrive and pick us up.

The first performance were two women that did a dance with some fans. It was cool, but it didn't compare to the dance that this guy was doing.

The hand movements were very hypnotic and when I started thinking about how he had his hands and fingers bent back for the majority of the time, I knew that this type of dancing required some serious strength even though it was a very slow and controlled dance.

I wish that I knew the story that he was telling with his hands, but I think a lot of it might be left up to interpretation as well since the music he was dancing to had no words.

The flow of his hands and arms could signify the wind or the waves. Then I started thinking about the different Gods and how they could be representing. I really wish that I knew what all of the movements meant.

After his amazing dance was over, we had to start heading out of the sanctuary and get back to catch our ride back to the resort. The area within the sanctuary was beautiful and @faitherz33 and I could have spent many more hours there.

They had paddle boat tours you could take to show you around the area and so many other cool ways to experience the scenery.

I am hoping to be able to get some time to start catching up on editing photos from all of the different temples that we have been visiting and all of the street photography I have been doing as well. For every photo that I edit, I think I shoot about 10 more that need edited. I am going to have to spend the majority of the plane ride back home working on photos so that I can start sharing some of the other amazing experiences my wife and I had.

Steem Fest was a blast this year and I am looking forward to the future of our blockchain. I have been doing 100% post power up rewards for the past few posts and I am going to continue for at least the next month. We have amazing things coming for the future of Steem and this is the best time to HODL and increase your stake.

Thank you for stopping by and checking out my post. I hope that you enjoyed the pictures almost as much as I enjoyed the experience of taking them. You are awesome!

So happy you enjoy the temples they are as you said the wonders of the world i have been living here for nearly 10 years and you know i haven't been down to see this temple yet work always seems to get in the way as with Steemfest i was looking forward to it then i got called out to work meetings on Koh Samui island just on them days how convenient....lol..glad you loved Thailand it's a amazing country 🙂

That is awesome that you have been here for that long. For the past couple years, my wife and I have been talking about moving here to Thailand and when they announced SF was going to be here, I was so happy because we would finally get to see the different areas and get a better idea of were we would want to settle down. The Pattaya area is pretty great and we could definitely see ourselves living here in the future. We have also been thinking about Chiang Mai as well, but we will have to visit that area on our next trip back here. We are already planning that, lol.

I do really love it here not only for the people the food but the weather i hate the cold i am thinking of moving down near Pattaya in the near future more towards Jomtien beach they will have the fast train line there soon so it will be easier to get in and out of Bangkok for work, Chiang Mai is a awesome place also but i am a beach person.

I am disappointed i couldn't make it to the Steemfest due to work i was in Koh Samui on them days but hopefully will see you out here next time...Cheers and sorry for the late reply have been snowed under with work 👍

I look forward to a post on the temple but what fabulous shots of the dance

I hope your day is good and not !DERANGED

Thanks @morkrock. SF was great and Thailand in general was amazing. It would have been awesome if you and Mew Mew could have made it this year. Hopefully one of these years we are able to get together and meet each other.
