I went for a ride on the back of a motorbike to check out the festivities in honor of the King's Bday (he turned 83) (+ check out my video post called "Motorbike Ride" for a true taste!):
Here's the bike-taxi driver, named Ék:
going against the grain:
Indians in a Túk Túk:
everything was lit up with lights:
it was a C-R-A-Z-Y scene...
TONS of Thais...
And, as if that wasn't enough, there were these beautiful, BIG, FLOATING candle-lamps in the sky!
(How they did this I do not know):
which is run by Denis (through José Ruiz):
and Travelin Matt from Philly (cap), and DJ Tech 12:
and the lovely Rachel, who even speaks Spanish!
One might assume she's Thai, but she's half Spanish, half Chinese, from Australia, and chilling in BKK!
BKK is unbelievable.
