I went to the eastern part of Thailand early this week for my field research. I was accompanied by two Thai student assistants. One of the places we went to was the Kung Krabaen Royal Development and Study Center. It is located near the beach. It must be great to work in such an area with a scenic view of the sea and hearing the waves splash on the shore. Must be inspiring as well. While waiting for our appointment with the staff there, we went to take some photos and just looked at the nice view. It was very relaxing especially as the beach was empty of people. I could just imagine myself sitting on a lounging chair under one of the pine trees with a book and a cold drink.
