Report, Story and Photos of the Government start to the Mukdahan Thailand Birthday Celebration

From 270912 birthday
You know your ceremony has gotten boring when the Governor starts to play "Angry Birds"
 So many of these ceremonies start off with a story about the spirits and making offerings and are then followed by a bit more spirit stuff followed by a bit of dancing and then the monks arrive to give the whole thing some religious aspect. Why the head monk of the Province arrived with a shoulder not covered I found a bit odd. Nevermind this is Thailand. The battery must have gone dead on the guv's phone since he bugged out early and finally after feeding the monks, they did not stay to eat, they bugged out. Another bit of group dancing and everyone escaped at just after the 2 hour mark.
All and all not too painful, some good dancing and music and not too much gridlock leaving. Somchai and I give it 7 out of 10.
