Bangkok/Thailand Trip

Just getting back into the swing of things here in LA after my journey to the far east. Mixed feelings about Thailand: On one hand it was an eye opener to experience another culture and on the other the poverty level and prostitution were a little more than I could handle. How are you supposed to enjoy a trip when you see three year old children begging all alone on the street? Or mothers selling their 15 year old daughters on street corners? A beautiful country with some not so beautiful realities.
