Sunset yesterday on the Chao Phraya River next to my building

My building from the dock. The blue flags are in honor of the queen's birthday.

Nice evening...

The Queen of Thailand comes to Suan Thip

Last Thursday the queen of Thailand came to where I live to visit a famous monk who has lives in a cottage on the property. The venerable monk is 97 years old and can't get around very easily. I was told that in his younger days he would visit the queen on her birthday (which was the previous Friday, Aug. 12). This year she came to see him. I missed the hoopla because I was at work.
