Dear Matt and Mar,
Mother’s day in Thailand falls on the 12th of August, to coincide with the Queen’s birthday, and it is a huge celebration in Thailand, this year’s theme is ‘Bike for Mom’, the crown prince came out and lead around 40,000 bikers in Bangkok alone (a Guinness World Record).
Of course this is a public holiday, but your mother had to work so it was up to me to entertain you for the day… I took the easiest way out and took you two to see your grandparents, haa haa haa.
Also decided to take you two to one of my favourite temple, Wat Suthat, parking near the temple would have been impossible. I’d decided to take a tuk-tuk instead, so you can imagine all the laugh we had.
The main temple was full to the brim, being the Queen’s Birthday as well as a public holiday, the best we could do is to pay our homage from the door, :-)
By the way this was the best Tuk-Tuk ever!
