The Durian, or the gun ?



Two signs at Nok Air check in, Don Meung airport.

Personally I would prefer passengers don’t take either on the plane. For those that don’t know durian, it is an evil smelling fruit that is banned from many hotels and public places, but some people like it…..

I am currently up north for the “Phi Ta Khon” festival at Don Sai, otherwise known as the “ghost festival”. Here are some photos from the festival, very roughly edited on my iPad.




The Lonely Planet describes this as a mix of Brasil’s Carnivale and the spooky side of Halloween …. As you can see from the first of these 3 photos, there is also a touch of Sydney’s Gay Mardi Gras’ sexuality ! 

Editing photos on an iPad is too clunky for me, it is much easier on my laptop !

I used photoshop express for cropping, but there is no apparent way to resize photos ? So then I had to take them into another app ( Resize) to bring them down in size to upload. Or am I missing something ? I am still learning my way around using an iPad for anything more than web browsing.
