The King & I : a Fond Farewell

Unlike Anna Leonowens, I never got to dance with the King of Thailand. In fact, I never even met him. But when I read that King Bhumibol Adulyadej of Thailand, one of the longest-reigning monarchs in history, died at age 88, I was saddened.dscn0963

He was beloved by the people of Thailand and when I went to Bangkok last week, I found a country in mourning. Farewell and rest in peace, my favourite king.dscn0972dscn0966
