Tuesday Travel Photo

This is as close to Halloween as Thailand gets. I first heard about the Phi Ta Khon festival when I went to stay with a group 122 Volunteer in Dan Sai (Loei province, northern Thailand), home to the celebration. People dress up for a huge parade with amazingly intricate masks as wood spirits. They also wave around giant penises. This festival normally happens in late June or early July, but I felt it was fitting for a ghost/Halloween themed TTP.

WIsh I had time to go
