Where I stayed
We planned this trip to Bangkok to attend and celebrate our son, Noah's graduation from Ramkhamhaeng University.
Today, Noah received his baccalaureate degree in Business Finance personally from the beloved Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn of Thailand. Along with the other families of graduating students, we watched from an adjacent site on television as Noah respectfully bowed four times and clasped his degree to his heart!
Many Monks and other special invited guests were in attendance all day. Noah was the only westerner to graduate this day among his 4,150 classmates. Sumalai's parents, Wat and Jong, traveled from Khon Kaen, her Aunt "Wow," came also, along with close friends, his business partner and employees. We had a celebratory lunch at Fuji (Japanese) and dinner at Le Lys, (French Thai) both delightful and delicious.
It was a very long, hot, and definitely off the tourist beat day in Bangkok. We were delighted to be in the company of so many joyous Thai families, and to meet our son's friends and classmates. Congratulations Noah for your remarkable accomplishment in this very competitive university business finance program!
