The Thai Wedding

take 7 women, banana leaves, flowers and lots of needles. put everything in one location and give them 5 hours and ready are the 2 flower pots!

the actual ritual is kind of nice. the bridegroom starts from his house and goes to the house of his bride. in front of the whole procession there go the 2 flower pots.

when they get to her home he has to give money to the children and old people of her family to get to his bride.

than it goes to the last part where the little flower pot comes into play. the wedding couple sits down next to each other and than they get a band around there wrist. the little cotton strings are part of the flower in the pot. than every guest takes a band from the pot and ties there arms together – kind of a symbol that they now belong together.

and after that – food and beer!

I like to travel and i like to snap pictures! My mother got me a Eurorail ticket when i was 15 and together with 2 friends we adventured into France. This was the beginning of a new addiction. I do like to take pictures so one thing leads to another and on this site i want to share some of my pictures and some of my trips with you! Now i am on the road for more than 6 months every year. Visiting old friends and making new friends while exploring this big blue ball.
