    [post_content] => Dear China Comp, China Internship and Thailand Families,

China South Airline Flight 327 has just landed in LAX. The flight was delayed by 2 hours and students are just now going through customs with their instructors. We are going to try our best to rush everyone to their connecting gates, but it is likely that a few students will not make their domestic flights home.

Parents will have to help rebook flights, but please call me at 720-363-9661 if you need assistance getting in touch with your child. I am happy to help coordinate.

Best,

Eva

I am an incredible community filled with fascinating culture so unlike my own where I can come and be welcomed with a smile.  I am Thailand.

I am the foreign of excited Thai kids laughing and joking.  I am Thailand.

I am a new food I have never tried but I am still wanting to try it without fear.  I am Thailand.

I am accepted and treated as an equal by people with totally different culture and language while I still feel like I am family.  I am Thailand.

I am putting other people's wants, needs, and comfort before my own without being asked to or asking for credit.  I am Thailand.

I am green pastures and gigantic cities. I am love, care, and always a smile. I am cooking stands all over, taking tradition and living everyday.

I am chaos in the cities and calmness in the cave. I am laughs and screams but always remembering the well being of others.

I am able to see good in others and understand people differently. I am understanding of life around me and how people fight and struggle to live it.

I am delicious food, a mixture of sweet, sour, salty, and  spicy. I am a bitefull of food that can completely change my day.

I am seeing the light in the other. I am putting others needs always before yours, and knowing peoples desires without asking them.

    [post_content] => So this is my last day in Thailand and it is truly a sad one. We went to the Bangkok market today and I spent the day exploring with Joe and Fernando through tons and tons of stands and stores and it was so overwhelming. Bangkok has been a lot of fun for our last few days but I miss the more simple places we visited. In places like the Karen village and Chiang Muan, we were able to bond and connect together as group and not be separated by the chaos of Bangkok's city life. Thailand has been such a special place for me because not only have I made a relationship with this country and its beautiful and compassionate people, but I have 15 new relationships with people I have really come care and love, and I am so sad to be leaving them so soon. I think back to the times where we explored the exciting Chiang Mai night market, when we were all exhausted and delirious on our trek while sleeping on wood floors, or when we were singing karaoke with our Thai brothers and sisters, and making complete fools out of ourselves. I also think of the more hard times of when we had to see our friend Bowen leave the trip, or when I have opened up to Hillary and Jamie and really be vulnerable with people I have only known for a short amount time. With this group however I feel like I have known them for years. It is so easy to talk, laugh, and even cry with these people and I am so thankful to have met them. Knowing them has made me a better person and nothing will compare to my experience with  Team Thailand 2013.

Last Day

Jess Tighe,Thailand Summer 4-week

Description

So this is my last day in Thailand and it is truly a sad one. We went to the Bangkok market today and I spent the day exploring with Joe and Fernando through tons and tons of stands and stores and it was so overwhelming. Bangkok has been a lot of fun for our last […]

    [post_content] => Before I stepped on the plane to Thailand this summer I'd read a lot on the dragons website about how the course would change me and help me grow.  I expected an amazing experience but in all honesty I didn't think I'd change.  I didn't come to Thailand thinking I'd come back different.  I was cynical about Dragons' (or anyone's) ability to make me different not because I didn't want change, but because I've spent so long trying to me different and haven't had any real results.  The truth is I haven't changed because of my experience but that's not to say I won't be coming home different.  What Thailand and my Dragons group did for me was so much more than simply changing me.  Instead, they saw who I am on the inside and they brought that me to the surface.  I won't be coming home the same because I'm going to be me.  I didn't need to change or become a new person on this trip.  I needed to become the person I've always been but that hasn't been present in the world till very recently.   I needed to become myself.

    [post_content] => Sawatdee-ka, people!

So it's our final day together in Thailand.  It's strange... Looking back, I think I've learned more this month than my whole school year.   So many things that once seemed so right to me now seem so wrong-- I think in some ways this trip has really flipped my world.

I've learned a lot of important things on this trip, but I think some of the biggest discoveries that I've made didn't have to do with Thailand.  I've learned so, so, so much about myself-- why I act certain ways, why so much of my dukkha, or suffering, is not because of the world around me, but my habit of clinging onto negative emotions.  This habit of mine brings me nothing but harm in the end.

Even more surprising-- I think that the most amazing part of the trip was bonding with my group-- the rest of Team Thailand.  They've really challenged me in so many wonderful ways-- making me put myself out there, making me reach out to people and open my heart to them. With my group, I think, I've grown a love for them at a level that I did not previously think was possible. They've surprised me again and again with an overwhelming amount of kindness and acceptance.  I think a lot of people have said at some point that they were glad that everyone on our trip ended up being really kind-- but I think it was the students' bravery, really, to reach out to people and expose themselves, that allowed everyone's true beauty and kindness to show in the end.

I have countless beautiful memories and lessons learned from my trip.  I could go on and on, but I'll end my yak-yak with this:  Thank you so, so, so much to my instructors, the other students, my homestay family, the random people on the street who treated me with kindness nonetheless, and finally, thank you to Thailand.  This trip has exceeded my expectations, and (not to be cheesy) I really think this trip has changed so much in me.  All I can say is thank you so, so, so much.  I'll hold the lessons I've learned close to my heart.

    [post_content] => The thing is I have grown quite used to goodbyes. Goodbyes to siblings as they wander in and out of the place I call home hoping they still see it as so. Goodbyes to seniors who I´ve grown so used to a spite the year I was born in yearly. Goodbyes to plays as we take are final bows and leave the theater into a crowd of friends and families while too tired and too exhilarated. Goodbyes are the saviors of history as we cast away old chains and accept a new idea of freedom, and goodbyes are just as well the villain of history as we lose those we need most in times of crisis. The thing with goodbyes is that they exist in a very abstract manner for although we say goodbye to the physical form of something, if we have learned a single lesson from the entity of whom we are saying goodbye to, they always stay with us in some manner. Death is accepted as the only true goodbye to be known of and not even I truly knows if such thing as eternal slumber exists so lets just call the whole thing off and cast the goodbyes aside. We can say that we shall meet again for it is a small world and we are big people with big voices. I've learned so many things from this trip so although I shall say goodbye to the borders of Thailand, I shall not say goodbye to what Thailand is. I shall not say goodbye to Greng Jai. Anyways, the city of Bangkok has defeated my energies as all cities have before so all I can think about is sleeping in my actual bed back at home. So many wonderful things have happened to me in Thailand it is hard to picture not seeing the rice patties anymore. But oh well. I've played soccer with Karen children, learned how to Thai dance, stayed in a Buddhist cave, and sang Karaoke with some wonderful people so I am content. I think I will continue posting things on this board even after I come home like most other people for I have certain thoughts that cannot find their way into existence. Also, today I've managed to spend 2,000 baht in shopping so ya, I feel accomplished.

    [post_content] => I am far.
In distance
And into the depths of Thailand.
The great, fantastical, green mountain ranges
And the unique identity of the people residing within them.

I am the sounds of nature,
But it is far from quiet.
The birds, pigs, dogs, roosters
And even the occasional far off motorbike can stir feelings of intimacy and magic.

I am the sweet air and gross snacks.
Flavors I didn't know existed are impossible to describe have become my favorites.
And dat soymilk.

I am aware
And a little greedy for wanting more.
I am sweaty,
But comfortable with the ones I love

I am Thai time
And being okay with that.
Chances are the lateness is due to the compassion and love shown to others.
Why be on time if you're hurting and ignoring others in the process?

I am Thailand.
