Hi all, you may remember that in February and March I spent about two weeks in Thailand with eight other female photographers. We had an amazing experience between volunteering at a girls' facility and photo-touring around the country.

I am slowly processing my images and experiences, and I'll add them here.

Damn Redneck - keep your mailbox open in the coming week for a thank you package for your camera donation!

Great post Amanda and kudos for the honest introspection too. Don't know how I would have reacted, perhaps I'll get my chance someday. I will say that while in Egypt, I passed on camel riding opportunities out by the pyramids of Giza but that was because it was a tourist rip off, ok and I also don't really like riding things with four legs...

i rode those camels in Giza...yes a tourist rip and pretty rough ride on a nasty animal.
Elephants? Oh boy, not sure I could do it. My only experience with this comes from watching Willie on Temple of Doom. You were brave, Amanda.

Haha! Temple of Doom, oh my gosh. Yeah, a little bit like that. Thank you Mike! And also thanks for your comments on the blog.

Excellent, excellent post. You hit on exactly how I would feel if given the opportunity to work with COSA as you did. I'm glad you had such a wonderful, meaningful time.
