One of the beauties of Poi Sang Long in Piang Luang I thought was that Shan villagers came from all around the Piang Luang - Wiang Haeng valley.
I never realized there were so many Shan living out there. In fact I'd say it is just about all Shan.
There was a huge fair ground set up in the school yard.
Each group had their own sala hut where they camped for the night with their respective Luk Gaew novice monks.
Despite being a religious event there was loadsa music, dancing & drinking. It was a full on party time.
They went all night it seemed.
On the second day a huge storm hit in the afternoon, cancelling the afternoon parade.
The playground became a mud field.
Still they partied on at night
In the storm one of the stages was somewhat messed up
& the power was well & truly interrupted,
but somehow repaired.
Cleaning up at the Wat after the storm
more to come..
