    The Maha Sarakham Storytellers

    by shrimp56 Written Jun 26, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This group and their leader were our hosts who planned and provided us with such a rich experience in NE Thailand.
    .
    Here they are acting out one of their stories -- the inset shows the back of their shirts. They mostly tell their stories in English as part of the attempt to spread the understanding of the English language. Most of the stories are from Thai legends.

    Traditional Thai Dancing

    by shrimp56 Written Jun 26, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Our hosts arrange for a three part evening -- first were the dancers. I learned that young Thai girls push their hands back to try to train them for the dancing. Please visit the travelogue for more pictures of the dancers.

    A Greeting Ceremony

    by shrimp56 Updated Jun 26, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Our hosts honored us with many traditional elements including this greeting ceremony -- the oldest women were honored by sitting close to the ceremony. The man dressed in white led the ritual which ended with the tying of strings around each others' wrists as friendship bracelets. You were supposed to wear them until they fell off. Mine lasted 2 weeks!

    Be respectful at religious sites

    This was the sign we saw at Phrathat Nadun near Maha Sarakham. The English is weak, but the request is clear.
