Buddhist monk Sutham Nateetong, a former education minister in his native Thailand, is walking Route 66 for peace. He began his journey in California and recently arrived in Yukon, Oklahoma. Tired of political infighting, Nateetong chose to become a monk to send loving ideas to everyone.
He walks about 30 miles per day, and many people buy his lunch or dinner. “In Oklahoma, some days are very windy, many rains, but I keep going,” he said.
After he reaches Chicago, where Route 66 ends, Nateetong plans to continue walking to New York. Read more about his journey in iON Oklahoma.
