View of the good, the bad, and the in-between from Pattaya and beyond

In 1995 I went up to Ganden monastery with my friend Tim Challen. The Red Guard had destroyed the temple complex during the Cultural Revolution. The Tibetans were finally rebuilding it in the 90s. I joined the volunteers in tramping around the roof singing Louie Louie. It's an easy song to learn and a good one for tramping in the mud.
