When I registered as official media to cover the Royal Barge Procession, I
had no idea how vast the actual celebrations were. Once I arrived in Bangkok
I stepped into the Wonderland of a truly Magic Kingdom. There was so much
going on there was no way to cover it all, but by staying in focus until the
wee small hours every night Neil Donahue and I did get in:

All before I departed for Puerto Princesa's Festival of the Forest on June
We hope you enjoy these images, and return in another month or so once we
finish researching the Ramakien. It's a great epic, but I want to be totally
accurate in matching the story with each particular fresco.
The videos of all this is even better than the stills, so look for the Royal
Barges DVD in another month or two. It's going to take that long to finish
the script, get all the official approvals, and finally edit out the show.
