thai word for 'kite' is ~ wau

We arrived in Bangkok early in the morning, after a flight of some 17 hours and after not sleeping the night before that, and after not sleeping enough the two weeks that before. So, lucky to be there again. We lunched, and then we launched our kites on the Sanam-Luang place front of the king's palace. Sanam-Luang is the place where bangkok residents fly their traditional kites every day. So it was easy for our european kites (muschel, v-lite and airmania-yakko) to meet some "chula" and "pakpao". After that we had very good dinner somewhere beyond KSR followed by 2 hrs of thaii-massage, so that we were fit to hit the road with next morning's sunrise...
