So when we visited Thailand recently, Kipling's words couldn't help but run through my head at every point along the way.
......from the "tinkly temple bells":
.....to the hathis "piling teak":
" .....If you've 'eard the East a-callin', you won't never 'eed naught else.No! you won't 'eed nothin' else
But them spicy garlic smells....."
"...For the temple-bells are callin', an' it's there that I would be —
By the old Moulmein Pagoda, looking lazy at the sea."
