    Lamphun knows how to party!

    Had these snaps in my album for a while, don't think I ever ended up posting them. This was when I first came to stay in Chiang Mai about and went down to visit the in laws to be around Song Kran time. This was a party for the opening of a new house, the owner one of the wealthier members of the clan, so a big show of face. The owner is a top bloke, can't read or write but makes a stack as a tradesman down south, as do all the men in the clan. They all keep houses and have family in Lamphun, but only return a few times a year. So when it's April and everyone's in town it's a riot.

    I was expecting a gathering with some food and drink and was blown away. When we got there, they had the police controlling the street and every house set up with tables and chairs facing a big stage on the side of the street. Each table had a bottle of sang some and a few beers, and awesome Chinese and Thai food was brought out by professional caterers. A top notch entertainment troupe put on a show before and after speeches.

    Not the best quality photos but here yas go...

    How much was a blowie behind the stage?

    Only joking, great stuff. Love these types of do's. Really a great aspect of Thai culture.

    On a side note I used to love riding the CM-Lamphun road when I lived there, the twisty one with all the old trees in the middle... a few yrs ago a motion was passed to cut them all down as Thais couldn't stop driving into them at breakneck speed in their Hilux', so the locals tied orange robes around them and none of the Thai workers would cut them down coz of it. And so they still stand... With the Hilux' grilles and buffalo being wiped off them every few days.

    Pretty funny, all the wives sit back while the men, pissed as farts, pull out 20 thb notes and shove them down the tops of the chicks. We figured they pulled about 5K in tips!

    He tips the girl by putting some note (20, 50 or 100) in her bra. If you tips her 1000 baht you can put the note in her bikini.
