Photographer's Note

At the Pi Ta Khon Festival (Ghost festival) in the little town of Dan Sai in the North Est of Thailand. At noon the heat is unbearable. The ghost dancers have been dancing since before dawn. Most of us have been driven to the shade of the temple or the many local bars for a cool beer. But this young 'ghost' was resting in the middle of the temple yard. He seems quite comfortable sitting in the full heat of the sun. I guess if you are a rice farmer, you just get used to it. After I had taken the picture 'Senk' (http://www.trekearth.com/members/Senk/) and I just about made it to the nearest bar. As it happened, the very bar where the bar lady show in my last posting was waiting to refresh us with a cool drink.
