Photographer's Note

Taken after an early morning trip to the ancient ruins of Ayutthaya, on my way out I stopped for a coffee at a roadside stall and saw this monk driving around very slowly, speaking and chanting through a loud hailer. A young woman approached him and he started to sing "Happy Birthday to you" ... in English, before blessing her.

Note; on going to Ayutthaya make sure you are there at the opening time, I think it was 7.30, there is hardly anyone about, an hour or so later and the place was crawling with tour groups and the like. Impossible to take pics without anyone in shot.
