Vegetarian Weekend



The weather has continued lovely with clear mornings and some thunder in the late afternoon or night. There's not a thunderstorm every day, but when they happen they are quick and loud!

Yesterday started very fresh, and I was at the entrance to Kathu Village for the vegetarian procession - all participants walked from Kathu to Phuket Town - about 5 kilometres to the edge, then another 4 through the town. The procession started at about 6:30am from the village, with plenty of firecrackers as statues of the gods were carried along :

I took a whole load of photos - you can see a report on Jamie's Phuket:

Phuket Vegetarian Festival

They start early to avoid the heat. By the time they were in town it was already hot, and the day was a scorcher, leading to the inevitable thunderstorm and a rainbow near my house:
