We had the day off together so we got up early and drove to the Khao Phra Taew forest area of Phuket in the northeast of the island. Where we were struck by the sheer number of people - wonderful excitement.
Then I met Jamie who was there with his trusty camera - and I am now in wonder of his beautiful photographs - there was only a scattering of other 'farangs' as well. This was the 4th event of it's kind and there was so little written about it - but Jamie's blog has a wonderful report about it so.... please have a read of his writing.
Thank you again to Jaipet - the Director of the Phuket Butterfly Garden and Insect World for his hospitality and to his wife for Jemma's teddy bear - I am writing a blog for you at the moment.
For more photographs please have a look at the photographs and the youtube video.
