Christian Cemetery,Ta Rae,Sakon Nakhon,Thailand

Sakon Nakhon probably has the largest percentage of Christian citizens of any Thai Province. Sakon Nakhon. Tha Rae is the center of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Thare and Nonseng. There are convents and a Seminary in the town.
I have visited and documented a number of Chinese, Vietnamese and Christian cemeteries in the region. I find the diversity of styles of each grave interesting. The Christian cemeteries usually hold Thai, Chinese, Vietnamese and anyone one else, where the other cemeteries are usually ethnically segregated. Ta Rae cemetery seemed to hold a large percentage of childrens graves, and a large number of empty graves. See for yourself……

World Blood Donor Day Thai Style

I really like the World Health Organization (WHO) concept in World Blood Donor Day, June 14 2012, and the idea that a blood donor is a hero. When I passed the event near the Kosa Hotel on Monday they had the music playing and dignitaries bloviating and I saw the sign the said “World Blood Donor Day” so went home and did a google search to discover the date and that it is a WHO event.

Songkran Final Tally And Final Reflections

Final Songkran Reflections According to the Road Safety Centre in Bangkok, there were 271 deaths on the road during the Seven Dangerous Days of Songkran (11-17 April).  I don’t believe it. Songkran Final Tally One of the reasons that I don’t believe it, is in the graphic from the Road Safety Centre.  They can’t add.  It says 271 deaths during Songkran, but the numbers total 266 and I had seen an earlier number of 299.  Whatever.  There is no way in hell that the numbers are this low.
