So I just found out this morning that I am currently living in 2551. I kept getting really confused as to why people kept tacking “51” onto things – so really this feels like quite a breakthrough for me.
I guess it shouldn’t come as a surprise that a Buddhist country wouldn’t use J.C.’s birthday as their go-to time-marker, and.. they don’t. Buddha was born 543 years before Jesus. So basically I’m living in the future – which is pretty sweet.
Also – here are pictures of a guy who makes jasmine rings in front of a Subway (as in the chain sub shop – not the public transportation) daily on my street. Both the jasmine rings and the bread being baked in Subway tend to smell delicious.
