100 days of mourning

A powerful and respected monk died here 100 days ago (this one of natural causes). He was loved by people all over the country including the revered royal family. Last night marked the end of the 100 days of mourning so they had a celebration at the temple that included Thai dancing and the display of the monks body in a gold coffin with tremendous number of flowers (many from the royal family). A nice finish to a good man's life.
