Hidden History: Babson Boulders

Last weekend I had the opportunity to visit the “Babson Boulders.” I had never heard of the Babson Boulders before, but recently learned about the history behind them.

You will forever be in my heart Ayutthaya!

I’ve been in Ayutthaya teaching English to the kids of Big Elephant Temple School for a whole week now. It’s such a shame it has to end so suddenly. A week maybe a very short period, but within this time I got quite attached to this friendly little town. Every morning the three other volunteers…

So finally I am in Thailand. It was really a good thing that I made a few backup plans because 2 of the three original plans didn’t quite work out (let’s not badmouth these organization). Luckily the third organization IFRE helped me out and connected me with a project to teach English in primary temple…
