A visit to the ornate Wat Benchamabophit Dusitvanaram (Marble Temple), Bangkok, Thailand. 馃彌锔 馃摳: 14.12.2015 on Sony DSC-HX9V.

Wat Benchamabophit Dusitvanaram is a Buddhist temple (wat) in the Dusit district of Bangkok, Thailand. Also known as the Marble Temple, it is one of Bangkok's best-known temples and a major tourist attraction. It typifies Bangkok's ornate style of high gables, stepped-out roofs and elaborate finials.

Construction of the temple began in 1899 at the request of King Chulalongkorn after building his palace nearby. The temple's name literally means the Temple of the fifth King located nearby Dusit Palace. It was designed by Prince Naris, a half-brother of the king, and is built of Italian marble. It has display of Carrara marble pillars, a marble courtyard and two large singhas (lions) guarding the entrance to the bot. The interiors are decorated with crossbeams of lacquer and gold, and in shallow niches in the walls of paintings of important stupas all over the country. The cloister around the assembly hall houses 52 images of Buddha.

The image of the temple's fa莽ade is visible on the reverse side of the Five-Baht coin of the Thai currency. The site contains the Benchamabophit National Museum.

When I turned 18 in June of 2018, I had the opportunity to start searching for my birth family. However, life got busy (work, family vacation, moving out, getting adjusted to college, etc.) and I didn鈥檛 end up submitting the paperwork to start my search until  late August. After that I sorta just threw that into the back of my mind and moved on with my life because there鈥檚 not a guarantee that they鈥檒l find my mom or if she鈥檒l even want to establish contact so I didn鈥檛 want to get my hopes up. A few months go by and December rolls around and the organization I was adopted through, Holt international, emailed me saying that they know where my birth mother is and that they would try and make contact. I thought that was pretty cool and I was overcome with a bunch of different emotions but like before I quickly sorta just pushed it aside and went back to my usual day to day. A few more months go by and then early February I get another email saying that they鈥檝e made contact and inside the email there was a letter from my birth mom and a whole bunch of pictures. The only picture I had of my mom prior to this was one that was taken when I born so seeing pictures of her was such a surreal feeling. It felt like there was so much weight lifted off of my shoulders but at the same I had even more questions than I did before. (2/3) this is a longer one and I apologize, but if you read it,  thank you for coming to my ted talk :)

Hell fires in my soul.
