Ringing in 2554

Happy New Year! In most of the world it is now 2011, but in Thailand it is actually 2554 (I believe this is because Thailand uses the Buddhist calendar, but when I tried to look it up my google-fu failed me) Our New Years Eve was spent with our friend Jeremy and it was definitely event filled! It included:

Sightseeing at Lumpini Park

Touring the ruins of the Suan Lum Night Bazaar

Playing Connect Four at a makeshift street side bar

 Watching the Bangkok skyline light up with fireworks as the clock struck midnight

All in all, it was a great way to celebrate 2010. Looking forward to the adventures that 2011 will bring!


  1. I bet the fireworks were spectacular! For once, I was actually outside of Bangkok, so missed it...

  2. They were spectacular! We could see all the fireworks from Central World to the river.
