Vanuatu Part 6 Remembrance to the King of Thailand

On 27th October the local Thai community was invited to the "Exotic Thai" Restaurant for a memorial service in memory and to show respect to the late King of Thailand 
His Majesty, Bhumibol Adulyadej.  

Very emotional experience with about 30 Thai people turning up. All dressed in Black and looking decidedly despondent and very sad to the extent there were quite a few tears....

There were prayers and a short service followed by a few eats and chit chat. It was really more like a wake than anything else I can describe.

Wanna and I attended. We were not in black as we were out for dinner when the late notification came through via a friend.
