Christmas Sangklaburi Style
There are a surprising number of Christians here, cosequently, they do celebrate Christmas. The local church had a Takraw tournament. Takraw is kind of like volleyball with a woven bamboo ball. You can use your whole body except your hands. The men have amazing agility and are able to "spike" the ball over the net a tremendous velocity.
The night featured a little festival at Baan Unrak Children's Home. It is always fun for me to hang out with the kids and see some traditional Karen dancing.
