    It is quite an elaborate affair - on all the Thai channels it is being shown and is quite beautiful, but I can't believe that people aren't suffering heat stroke since it is blindingly hot and many are dressed in full dress uniforms! There is supposed to be a way to hear the commentary in English, but despite valiant efforts of my hotel - haven't been able to do that, so have to be satisfied with the video.

    and some history of the Princess and listing of the events http://www.bangkokpost.com/news/local/288021/nation-bids-farewell-to-princess

    don't know if there are any youtube up of the videos - it is one of the most impressive ceremonies I have seen - but glad to be in my a/c room!
