Long Live The King

In our memories...

King Rama IX passed away in October, but December 5th would have been his birthday.  Here are some pics of the mourning ceremony.

For a month everyone was asked to wear black - even department store mannequins.

Similar to the good luck colors for cars, this guy posted a sign that says "this shirt is black.  I love the king".  There were reports of some people being attacked because they didn't look or act mournful enough...

Korat / Ayutthaya Trip

Here are some pics from Nuch's recent trip to Korat.  

The ancient capital, Ayutthaya, is about an hour from where I live, so we spent an afternoon there collecting Facebook fodder.

Ayutthaya is about the only place of interest in Korat, so we spent the rest of our time eating and drinking

No trip to Korat is complete without a visit to the Ya Mo statue.

Soon to take over Ya Mo's position as the #1 stop in Korat is the Terminal 21 Observation Tower that opens on Dec 15.

The King - Then And Now

Someone in Thailand took some well known photos of the late Thai King and placed them in front of the present day background.
