Songkran 2009

This weekend two monks from Wat Santiwongsaram in Birmingham came to the Isle of Man for the Songkram celebration.

Whilst Noi, Jeep and others were preparing for the festivities, I took the monks on a tour of the Island. The highlight I think was the Laxey Wheel (Lady Isabella). We all climbed to the top. Neither PJ or William were worried about the height. It was quite dizzy looking down from the top. We even put on hard hats and went a short way down a mine, including the monks.

After refreshments at our home we arrived back at Noi's house later than expected. The monks immediately retired for their evening meditation.
