15 Minutes of fame comes to everyone, so some people say. These girls 15 minutes comes during the annual Loy Crathong celebration put on by Assunption University. They perform traditional thai dancing. They have just finished the performance and I caught them in a moment of relief at a performance with no mistakes. They also look so very beautiful.
