Four years in and out of Bangkok.
Two years living in Bangkok.
Two years of celebration of Loy Krathong.
And I finally got my first Krathong.
Traditionally, Thais release their krathongs into rivers and canals. But modern days see anything-water is fine .. D brought me to Lumpini Park and also Chao Phraya river the last time. I was horrified with the amount of pollution then (and now still).
This year, we stopped by at Chatuchak Park, and I got a simple krathong at 30 baht. The elaborate krathongs can be as expensive as a hundred bath.
As I refused to contribute to the pollution, I float mine at .. unconventional water-spots.
Happy Loy Krathong everyone … may all unhappiness, sorrow, anger, grudges, dissappointment float away to far, far away … down the plumbing pipes, perhaps.
