From the Field Diary, 1st of August 2017
Today we visited Wat Hua Wiang. The temple is as empty and quiet as the rest of northern Thailand around this time of the year – beautiful. I was fascinated by the materials left there. It was a monument of simplicity, casualty, and robustness. Incense sticks, a vault, some string, bowls, plastic flowers, and a cabinet of old books.
Wat Hua Wiang is a temple built in 1863 at the very northern end of Thailand in the city of Mae Hong Son. The name ‘Hua Wiang’ means ‘province’.
