Song Phra Charoen

It being the King's birthday too, we all head out to the city hall to honour him. We light candles and sing songs (well, they do – I don't know the words), and have fireworks (they're not big on health-and-safety in this country – the fireworks are being lit right next to the crowd). This is possibly the biggest fireworks display I've ever seen – they set off several huge rockets at a time (the bangs were so loud that the vibrations were setting off people's car alarms in the adjacent carpark).

So, long live the King – Song Phra Charoen!

Hi Charlotte, Great stuff and wonderful to read that you are having such a fun and interesting time! Mum just gave me the address tonight so this is a test since I've never been on a blog before let alone put a comment on one. Would like to leave my e-mail address but not sure this place to do it. Arturo & I send our love. Penny xxooxx
