Thailand is affectionately known as the land of smiles. It is a country dotted with small villages and rice fields that all seem to flow toward the urban center of Bangkok. The population of Bangkok is anywhere from 9 million to 14 million on a daily basis. Like a heart beating, the number rises and falls with the daily influx and dispersion of people from rural to urban and back out. This urban center is the influencing force for education, economy and culture. At the same time, it is a city full of brokenness. Large concentrations of men and women are exploited for the sex industry. Impoverished families are stuck fighting for survival each day. The desire for money, power and status keep many dissatisfied.
