A time for reflection...being in an exotic locale for a Royal funeral...where royalty is very dear. Thank you for sharing the event with us.

Thank you for your detailed account of this highly unusual and solemn event.
I brought back a long forgotten memory from childhood in Thailand in the 1950's when I too attended a royal cremation at the Sanam Luang (Golden Field). For me at the time it was a traumatic event as I had little previous exposure to death; thus better forgotten, but now gratefully remembered.

Hang in there...
Hi, I just wanted to say that I enjoyed reading your blog especially cs two years ago my boyfreidn and I went to Delhi and on the first couple of days had much the same experience as you. We were sooo angry by the end of day one that we headed straight for the Himalayas. Anyway, our flight home was out of Delhi so we had to go back at the end of our trip. So after we'd had a month of getting used to the way they rip tourists off, the constant stares and acquired an idea of how much things should cost we had an awesome time in Delhi. So maybe if you go back next time you'll have a much more enjoyable experience. We certainly did!!

Snack time again!

Life as it is sometimes is better than its original colors
Nice shots, Bro! You must have spent a heck of time in the densest part of Jakarta. Those polluted rivers, my late dad used to swim in there back in the 1940's. He said the water was cool then, refreshing. Ah, if only the waters condition could be reversed.

One of the best-written blogs I've read on TB. How you managed to get so much wordage out of a plane flight leaves me in awe!

Another window blind rebel
I really love your description of life on a long flight. I can completely relate to your need to open the blind, too. It drives me completely crazy when there is a wonderful starry sky or, even worse, a gorgeous sunrise or bright daylight over scenery or clouds and I have to sit in a claustrophobic, stuffy cave in dim light. The false "nights" they use to subdue the "inmates" are far too long, boring and a waste of the time I could be enjoying the experience of flying over our wonderful world. If I don't have a window seat, I go to the back of the plane, where there is usually a window over the emergency chute, and sneak a peak for as long as I can get away with it. The other thing I hate is when people have been lucky enough to get a window seat and then spend the whole flight with the blind down, even when they are allowed to have it up! Then no-one else can look out. Very selfish, I reckon. You have taken some great shots of exactly the kind of things I love to look out for. They were a joy to look at. Thanks for sharing them.

Your chance picture
Hi, I was researching some Kyushu basho stuff because I want to go this year. Been everywhere else so might as well try. I came across your blog & how exciting to see your "chance picture" is with two of my best friends. They are from Onomatsu beya. On the right Kurosawa & left Keno. It is a small world afterall!! I enjoyed your pics too & I may stop by Shigenoumi's chanko place while I'm there.... but I'm usually exhausted after 8-6 of sumo every day for 15 days!!! Take care,Viki

Reliving my memories
I lived in Mongar from October 1990 to May 1992, teaching in what was then Mongar Primary School. Recently I was telling someone about the Yadi loops and gave a google search and came across your site. Nice pictures. Shocking changes in the town. Wonder what my little school and my house in front looks like.
