Sunday Stroll in Suphan

It's been a lazy weekend in Suphanburi, with most of it spent holed up in my fave coffee spot down the street from school working on final exams.  I actually kind of had fun writing the exams, doing fill in the blank vocabulary in a letter I composed to Justin Bieber (Bieber fever is alive and well in the hearts of these Thai schoolgirls!)  Mixed in was a trip to the Chinese Dragon Descendants Museum to celebrate Chinese New Year - a week-long celebration full of nightly fireworks displays (so loud and aggressive that at first they had me doing a duck and cover move thinking central Thailand was under attack), lanterns lining the streets, and some big-name concerts.  Check out this video on YouTube if you're interested in the type of production they put on - it was very impressive! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pTLGaCSPH30 I spent most of this afternoon/evening wondering around my little 'hood snapping pics on my ipod.  Here's a peek into a lazy Sunday in Suphan:

Thai movie stars.

Big fireworks display @ the dragon. Thais love pyrotechnics.
Deej @ and some Lanterns

The town's Chicken Shrine. No one can quite explain it's meaning.

The Suphan tower all lit up. 
Street vendors at the night market.
