Buddhist Novice Ceremony and Celebration

We enjoyed Shan food and watched the community come together to celebrate a Buddhist Novice Ceremony of close to 100 Shan boys, their family and their community at Wat Ku Tao in Chiang Mai. Colorful and festive for sure.

1st April turned out to be a good start of the month with the success of by-elections in Burma  and as a family we attended something festive together with my mom.  And top of that I’m feeling better and I’m grateful.

One of the videos and a few pictures of the so many pictures and videos we collected.

So glad we had this day and M had the opportunity to witness this celebration together as a family.
