There are five things which no one is able to accomplish in this world: first, to cease growing old when he is growing old; second, to cease being sick; third, to cease dying; fourth, to deny dissolution when there is dissolution; fifth, to deny non-being.
-- The Buddha
Our local lychee season is just coming to an end. So we made a quick trip up the mountain to a hill tribe Royal Project to purchase a few kilos.
Beautiful sunny day and still plenty of fruit on the trees, we were invited to help ourselves and pay for the fruit we couldn't eat at the time. [5 Baht, (under 10 pence) per kilo.]
The larger lychee, some as big as a large hen's egg, we could have for free because they were regarded as too juicy!
