Coconut Trees & Yee Peng Beauty Contest

Sawadee Khrap

Here are several shots of the coconut trees lining to entrance to our cul-de-sac and a shot of the fruit on one of the Palm trees there.








And here is a shot of Nu as he prepares to leave for school as a contestant in the Yee-Peng Beauty Contest at his new school.




If he can be one of the top three winners he will represent the school in the big Yee-Peng, Loy Krathong Parade in Chiang Mai on Thursday night.

He is supposed to call me and let me know as soon as he wins – I think he will but only time will tell now –  I’ll have more on the next post.




SIDE NOTE:    Temperatures plunged last night to 67F – freezing, damn it was cold – reminded me of the first time I came to San Francisco Bay Area from Omaha, Nebraska.  It was 50F and I thought I would never get warm – I had just left 0 or -0 temperatures and was never so cold – the Bay Area was cold !  — and now I feel the same way here – 60F and I’m freezing – Wow I am getting used to the climate.
