Monks on street corners

Four months ago I never would have thought I’d be standing on a street corner in Siem Reap, Cambodia having a conversation with a Theravada Buddhist monk not much older than I am.

Today I treated it as ordinary until I was walking away and I realized that that would never happen in suburban Virginia.

Apparently a lot has happened in four months.
