On November 18-23, upon the invitation from Chaipattana Foundation of Thailand, Lucy and Gan attend the International Conference on Environment, Livelihood and Service (ICELS 2018) which took place in CW Tower, Bangkok. Gan gave a keynote speak on ‘Fate of POPs in Asia and nexus’. The two acted as chairs in different sessions. They also visited Pasicha in Chulalongkorn University where they met Professor Wadina Jinsart, head of department of environmental sciences and discussed on future collaboration potentials. The trip ended with a visit to Lam Pak Bia wetland and Amphawa water market.
It was a nice talk.
The talk ended with a Chinese ‘Ci’ I wrote for Thailand 2 years ago. 【玉堂春·暹罗】四方佛地，纤指浓妆骚女。月印湄南，日抹宫玑，十万人家，沃野良田碧。几处唐音陌客羁。 缅甸高棉寮老，相拥何所依？问讯神州，莫道桑榆晚。海上丝绸半岛系。
