Yesterday Khun Gai bought a new motorbike so we all went to the temple in Khok Kloy to have it blessed by the head monk. While we were there I asked him if I could come back in the morning and fly the Phantom over the temple to photograph it in the early morning light. He seemed thrilled with the idea so this morning I went down there and flew around with him standing next to me and looking over my shoulder. He had a huge grin on his face the whole time as he saw his temple from a totally different perspective.
I’m planning to have the photo printed up and framed and then I’ll give it to him. He is a lovely man and has been coming out to the house every year to perform the house blessing at Sonkram, the Thai New Year.
