Foreign Friday

Traditional Thai dancer
Bangkok, Thailand
December 1979
My tour group enjoyed an evening of authentic Thai food and entertainment when we were in Bangkok. I apologize that the photos are a bit fuzzy, but I wanted to share the exquisite traditional dress that the dancers wore - such vibrant colors. The fingertips that she is wearing are not clearly seen in this photo, but they looked like the ones that I found here.

  2. The costumes are very elaborate and probably added to the drama of the show.

  6. Ah this brings back memories. I have seen these dances, but as a child here in the States my mother used to send me to Thai Temple and there we were taught and we would practice and perform. I remember we once did a performance at the Airport at the unveiling of Service to Thailand for an airline. Funny, right?
