Nun Coming Out From Hall

A nun came out from another hall next to Lak Mueang

There was another hall next to Lak Mueang. I didn't know what it was. Yet I saw many locals coming in and out. When I peeped into the hall, a golden altar was seen inside. And some golden statues were placed on it. It might be a kind of Buddhist temple.

I stood under the eaves of Lak Mueang and watched people going in and out. In the meantime, a nun came out from the hall. However, it was impossible to become a formal nun for women in this country. So the woman wearing Kasaya-like robe was not a nun. She was a Buddhist laywoman called Maechi. Because I didn't see her entering, she could keep praying inside for a long time. So she seemed to be tired of praying.
