Wat Khun Chee Phuket - Being Blessed by the nuns

One nun who made a lasting impression on me is in her late eighties and she was such a character, we had many photos taken together and she made us tea from flowers she collects then crushes.


When we were ready to leave, this beautiful old nun went into her room then came out and gave me a plastic hospital medicine bag, it was full of the crushed flowers, she wanted me to have it so I could make tea each day.

Visiting guests are required to follow the daily routines of the resident nuns and join in with all communal meetings and work activities.
