Floating Latterns: a Starry Night In Chiang Mai, Thailand

 

It was such an epic night, right off the pages of a fairytale book. We walked the streets near Chiang Mai's Tha Phae Gate watching thousands of people light floating lanterns, sending them up into the dark sky. From a distance it felt like the milky way had come a little closer to us that night but eventually the burning lights fade, the sky is left dark and the only remanence of the lanterns is the burnt paper and metal frames littered on the streets the next morning.
