Los ciempiés también van al cielo. Crónicas mágicas de Tailandia is a mixture of essay and travel book about Thailand in which to immerse yourself in Thai religious eclecticism, which collects components of Buddhism, Hinduism and animism.
Many travelers arrive in Thailand with an idea of ​​Buddhism totally removed from reality, where the stereotype is a monk meditating in a cave or in the middle of a forest in search of nirvana. It was the image that Gaspar Ruiz-Canela, the author of this book, had in his mind when, 10 years ago, he came to this country. However, he has discovered that many Thais practice a heterodox Buddhism, an amalgam of beliefs that include Buddha, all kinds of deities or protective spirits.
