Microphones - Gotta Love 'Em.

It's now a little after 11 PM and the party across the little street is going strong. As in, the music is still being played and the little mom and pop shop is still open. The thing that is cracking me up (and therefore I'm going to share with you!) is the fact that they are using a microphone even though seven people are at this shindig. Yup, I counted the people gathered around.

Seven.

Now, I probably need to explain this little fact: Thai people love microphones. At any given moment, while walking through the mall, someone invariably is on a microphone somewhere within the 5-story building. Never mind the fact that you would be able to hear (quite clearly, I might add) without the aid of the microphone. Or the fact that a lot of times two people will each be talking to each other using a microphone.

So I suppose that's why I'm not surprised they are using a microphone across the street to celebrate Thai New Year. I should count my blessings, right?

At least they can sing:).

You are so right....microphones are magnificent! And they never seem to be in short supply. How funny.
