Today we have seen rising up in the sky hundreds of paper lanterns lighting up the night, this celebration is know as Yi Peng or Loi Khrtaong and is celebrated across the country but more especially in northern Thailand. Here in Chiang Rai, we have been lucky to contemplate such a wonderful show. Children have prepared their little ship with candle on top, and once the full moon shines across the deep black mystical sky, everybody goes to the river, leave the ships go away on the water, carrying dreams, hopes and forgiveness along the river. Then we saw lanterns flying above the Centre and everyone lost eyes and mind in this magical sky for a while. Kids and volunteers felt closer to the stars and flying away from worries and problems. A moment of poetry never hurts anyone.
