The King of Thailand is the world’s longest reigning Monarch at this time. This year he is celebrating 60 years on the throne. In honour of this event there was a royal barge procession on the Chao Praya river in Bangkok.
We had a great day (even with the rain, which just seemed to draw the crowd closer together) amongst these very nice and friendly / smiling people. Everyone was really ahappy, and the people around us were offering to share their picnics and snacks.
The barges were terrific, of course.
52 in all, over a period of about 1 hour.
