Culmination.

It was an 8-day Thai funeral.

Cremation (and for Max and I, ordination) was on the last day.

Ashes were spread on the nearby Chi river this morning (9th day).

Nam is still working on the aftermath, even now. These are some photos from one of the outfits (HD-ELEE Studio) covering it.

Gang Wai

Made from the tip of some mysterious plant which I’m too lazy to Google at the moment, the wai in gang wai is both seasonal and local, so it would probably sell out at Whole Foods back home. This particular iteration also contains white ants. It is one of the best bowls I have ever eaten. Coincidence? I think not. Insects make everything better, people (you eat parts of them every day anyway).
