    October 23rd

    Today is Chulalongkorn Day celebrating the birthday of King Chulalongkorn or Rama 5 (the 5th King in the Chakri Dynasty).

    He was/is much loved and his is the image you'll often see, astride a horse, in the small shrines (often with a glass of Regency brandy in front).

    Some more here (can't find the Thai history thread)

    with a deceased dad and a ton of paperwork/logistics to do, the holiday really was a burden on my poor wife, unfortunately
    she couldn't catch one break in all of that
