They do have public events in Taiwan, but nothing like the orderly procession in those photographs. I know it's the wrong country, but I can just hear Handel's Water Music accompanying it.
Handel's piece is one of my favourites. It could easily accompany anything, anywhere!
So stately and grand! Reminds me a bit of Queen Elizabeth's 1,000 boat Diamond Jubilee flotilla.
Dear Columnist, These are wonderful photographs, and I'd love to view that procession in person. Years ago I read the fascinating biography of King Mongkut, Rama IV, which in turn made me very conscious of the current king, and his good works.
Loi - yes, similar, but dry!
Mark - historical context is always fascinating, and these ceremonies bring that to the forefront.
