    Doing the rounds the last week Ive picked up on a few festivals that might interest some people

    8-9 November Tai Lue Kathin Ceremony in Phayao
    17-18 November Tai Lue Kathin Ceremony in Nan
    23-24 November Tai Lue Ceremony in Chiang Khong
    23-24 November the Sunflower & Hill tribe festival in Hua Mae Kham.
    6-10 December 10 Hill Tribes festival in Mae Sai.

    The Tai Lue Kathin ceremonies were pretty amazing IMHO & the one I followed from Chiang Khong to Mae Sai last week was sensational for photographs. (Pix still coming = too busy.)

    Thanks David!

    So much to see and never enough time. I'm envious of your retired folk!

    The Sunflower & Hill tribe festival in Hua Mae Kham sounds quite special- I think I'll try and make that one. Will you be there?

    See you on Saturday in MHS! :happy5:
