Loi Kratong Festival in Thailand

One of our travel bloggers, Ken at The Vancouver Traveler, is traveling around Asia right now.  He’s had some difficult with electricity, let alone an internet connection, but he was recently able to send me this beautiful photo of the Loi Kratong Festival.

The festival is celebrated annually in Thailand, usually during the month of November.  One of the traditions is to decorate a raft and then release it on the night of the full moon.  It looks like the raft launching is what is happening in the photo.

I thought it was a beautiful photo of light, dark, and something else. . . something mysterious, or maybe mystical, going on.

Thanks, Ken.  Safe travels.
