Thai party

December 8, 2009

Got lucky on my last trip to Thailand. Once a year, on the 12th full moon, all Thais gather in Chiang Mai for the ‘Loi Krathong’ festival. AllĀ  night long, they light fireworks and thousands of paper laterns that arise in the sky, and put in the Mae Ping river little baskets of bamboo leaves (the krathong) with candles and incense.

Right place, right time.
