    Khmer Buddhist stuff...

    October 3-5, Bonn Pchum BenPchum Ben generates an air of spiritual reverence and holiday expectation throughout the country. Along with Khmer New Year and the Water Festival, Pchum Benh is one of the most important Khmer holidays of the year. It is a holiday to honor and care for the spirits of ancestors, said to return to earth during this period. People travel to pagodas to make offerings of food, incense and money to help ease spiritsí burden. This is a colorful, photogenic time at the pagodas. All government offices and many business close for the holiday.
    They're at it again, along the border areas in Isaan.

    To the temples and leaving bits of food and stuff around the fields and paddy's, for the hungry ghosts etc.

    Or believe in magical gambling systems (as a punter) and leave a large portion of their wages?

    I live across from this wat and it goes off with monks and loudspeakers at 4am for two weeks. Today they went silent. Finally got to sleep straight thru. Its a good stop when I come back from the bars hammered after a full night.
