    Nice shot … my daughter would have loved one of those for Christmas. Are the villagers proud of their position as umbrella making capital of Thailand?

      Well, it’s more a suburb than a village these days… But, yes, they have a big gateway to the village, covered in umbrellas, and a general brolly theme to the environment…
