Pre-Dawn AlmsWe waited with hundreds of early risers, some tourists and many locals, beside a road that came into Chang Mai from the mountain that looms over the city. We had purchased rice and other food to offer as alms. Well, before sunrise, the monks quietly walked down the road passing by until one stopped before us to accept our offerings for his bowl. This would be his only sustenance for the day.
