The beloved king of Thailand recently had his 80th birthday so the entire country had a holiday and wore yellow. I had just packed my suitcase full of yellow when I received this email from my sister:

“i forgot to tell you… you probably haven’t heard, but the king’s sister passed away just after the new year.  thailand is observing 100 days of mourning therefore everyone has been requested to wear black or white (or gray is acceptable too) during this period.”

Well, that should be easier to pack for. Means there will be lots of black, white, and gray clothing for sale too.

One hundred days!
