Some call it wild or Mexican sunflowers, some 'buatong'...

This weekend, 19 and 20 November, at Doi Hua Mae Kham the annual Sunflower Festival

takes place again. Sometimes it is also called the Hill Tribe Culture Festival.

Food, shows, dances, you name it!

And all this in a very beautiful mountainous landscape close to the Burmese border.

GT-Rider has some good information about it.

It's about 100 km from Chiang Rai town: from Maechan a few kilometers to the north,

then to the left at the traffic lights in Ban Pasang, the road to Doi Mae Salong thus.

After ten kilometers, nor far from Katiliya Resort and Spa, you will see the beautiful

creation of architect and national artist acharn Chulathat Kitibutr at your left:

The Manee Dheva restaurant and spa.

A well-balanced eclectic mix of Lanna, Balinese and modern elements.

When you come at the 'saam-yek' about 12 kilometer before Doi Mae Salong you go straight

on to Hin Taek, the former stronghold of Khun Sa, now renamed into Therd (Thoedt) Thai.

I guess Ban Hua Mae Kham will be another 20 km after Hin Taek.

Currently on show at the Black Village - until the 6th january - is an art exhibition of Thai artists works. Normally exhibited down in BKK (and sponsered by the Bangkok Bank Ltd.) the Bua Luang exhibition features approx. 45 works of art in mixed media, some of traditional styling, others very contemporary.

Worth a look see. Entrance to the exhibition is free and it is held inside the large 'banqueting' hall.

no get-together at Boomerang park this Saturday, as it's New Year's Eve. Planning on meeting again on subsequent Saturday evenings though. On the previous get-together, a minstral played a bunch of 60's and 70's oldies on the guitar - with sing-alongs. The Saturday before that, was mostly drum circle with two digureedoo (sp?) players. Plus some young Thai women danced traditional Thai dance around the campfire. On January 8th, we expect more drum circle players, along with more oldies sing-alongs, with or without harmonic back-up vocals.

It's only indirectly a community activity related to Chiang Rai, but worth to be mentioned:

The 24 hours of Dubai of last week!

The second price for participating clubs went to the gentlemen behind the wheel of the Ford Mustang

FR500 GT3, that was flying the flags of the Chao Phya Abhai Raja Siammanukulkij Foundation in

Mae Chan.

The Mercedes SLS AMG GT3 of Jeroen Bleekemolen, of the Team Black Falcon, was the winning

car with not less than 628 rounds.

For the Ford with chassis #002 is was the last race. After Dubai it gets its livery of the 24 hours of

Spa 2010 back (there the Mae Chan related text disappears) and it will be on display in the museum

of the Circuit of Francorchamps in Stavelot.

It was the seventh edition of the race and it had the strongest participation ever.

A great homage for this car in its last race! And an enormous performance of its pilots!

Gratulations!

"Worldcolors."

There is a lot of advertising going on at the moment for a music and cultural event to be held later this month. 23-26thFebruary.

The official website says that it will be held from 4pm onwards (presumably on each of these dates) and the aim is "to celebrate humanity in her myriad colors" on the 750th anniversary of CR.

It will feature, apparently, a mix of Thai, hill tribe, and international music and culture. It reports acts from USA, aboriginal Australian music, 'Afro-Aussie', Lahu, Punjabi, Hmong etc.

The venue is reported to be at "The circle of Culture" on the NamKok, 'on the way to the airport'................. Does anyone have any idea where exactly it will be held?????

With help from Woraphat and a bit of walking around this morning- the Circle of Culture has been found. It's at the Flower show site -and is (yes!) the big concrete circle where the Akha swing and hilltribe buildings were. They were erecting a stage there this morning.

Just back from the World Colors @ Chiangrai thingy where the hilltribe houses from the Flower Festival still are. Todd TongDi was MC - he's been on many a Thai stage for well over 2 decades, speaks Thai quite well. Tomorrow, Sunday, is the last day, with School Shows starting at 6 pm, Ongsasin Cnetral Rhythm at 7 then Hmong Superstar, World Colors of Lahu, Dara-ang, PuTai and Kamu... lastly, at 10:30 a Farewell Jam.

In all, nicely weird, with a tiny yurt, a teepee made of crepe or something, a Thai on digereedoo, a Lakota hoop dancer/flutist who looked and spoke quite White by me... some interesting write-ups (including about Lanna trade with Mongolia - I'd LOVE to see evidence of THAT!!!), and lots of food, handicrafts and drinks. Oh, and Karen kids were doing a neat dance between moving bamboo poles. Plenty of parking, all free.
