The Beauty that is Thailand


Ayutthaya, Thailand

I received this postcard from Mark, who is originally from England but has been living in Thailand for 10 years. This postcard is from Ayyuthaya, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and former capital of Thailand. According to the Buddhist calendar (When this was sent), it is now the year 2555, which means the buddhists have been laughing at the Mayans’ “2012” since 1469. Mark ends off the postcard with the words “May the force be with you”. Now I must beg the question, do buddhists actually say that to each other or was that just a quote from Star Wars? Can somebody that knows please enlighten me?
