Door knocking was fun and highly amusing. I discovered that Praran/Phraran/Prahran/Prarhan had a lot of gates. Everybody had a gate. They were slightly intimidating, and we thus did not enter about a third of the residences. Another third didn't answer the door. So that makes about a third who did, and who donated.
It was time spent with cool people, for a good cause, and there was free food. How much more could you ask for?
Highlight of the trip was this guy giving us a whole plateful of silver; must have been nearly 20 bucks worth of coins. Although we did 'steal' that house from our collecting partners...but they were being slow. We didn't mean it.
All in all, much fun.
