Spontaneous parade at Tapei Gate (Chiang Mai)

Spontaneous parade at Tapei Gate (Chiang Mai)

Imagine you are strolling through a crowded thoroughfare. Foreigners and locals mill about, darting between cars and motorbikes for a quick coffee or lunch.  Suddenly, you hear a cacophony of drums, chimes, flutes, and perhaps a dulcimer or two. The sea of bodies parts; the traffic stops; and a troupe of brightly clad women slowly dances towards you.

You have no idea what is happening or what signaled the beginning of this phenomenon.

The moment is perfect and fleeting.

      1. My aunt’s kids were all born and raised in France, and they took lessons from the age of 5 until they were teenagers. They got all the graceful genes though! I just do the very basic moves at parties…you know exactly what I’m talking about lol.
