kitefestival thailand 2002
heading to the
workshop" in the gulf of thailand we stopped
in bangkok for some aerial warmup with the thai kitefliers.
unfortunately we had no time to meet the thailand kitefestival at hua hin, the
"royal paradise beach" - but very fortunately we could meet the national
kite and fighterkite challenge on the sanam luang place in bangkok.
the national kite challenge was held from march 08 until march 20 in front
of the royal palace.

lucky surprised : arriving at the sanam-luang place, we found that a large
kitefestival was going to start with the next day!
on march 07 there were already hundreds of kitefliers
for testing, training and warmup.
and, so did we.
