The drumming that welcomed me as I approached this normally quiet Klong Mu Dong was what surprised me.
As I got closer I was suddenly confused - there was a buzz on this dull Sunday morning. There were children dressed in every manner of coloured clothing and every type of flower in the girl's hair.
I was not in Brazil....
Did I understand anything? - no not really, but this is what Thailand is all about - smiles, sharing, community and families.
Answers to everything (as we search for in the West) are not always necessary.
Sharing the happiness is
- welcome to Thailand
