Yesterday was the King’s birthday.He was 88 years old. He did not make a public appearance as he is too frail.
It also doubles as Father’s Day as the King is regarded as the Father of the Nation.
Family ties are very strong in Thailand and children have a great respect for their parents.
Across the road from us live a Scottish guy , his Thai wife, and son Robbie. Both Richard and Jen have previous marriages. Yesterday they held a party at home where Robbie paid homage to his father. Thanks tor the Father & Son photos, Jen.
