River Kwai Bridge Week!

sunny

WHOO HOO! Hey hey hey bloggers!

We are so lucky that we got to Experience River Kwai Bridge week! The bridge on the River Kwai is located west of Bangkok in Kanchanaburi. Here is where allied prisoners of war were forced to build the bridge during the WW2 in order for the Japanese to move their supplies to Burma. The Bridge week is a huge festival that displays the historic exhibits from WW2.

We had to see so much in one night! There was a carnival parade with floral floats, a peace pageant and a ride on a steam hauled wartime train. The best part of the whole night though was the lights and sounds show! It was absolutely nuts! It was based on the life and conditions on the death railway. We had the light show translated in English to via headphones. It was a very cool night! Absolutely motivating!

We tried to get a good photo but Jen's camera crapped out!

Today was such a great night but seeing all of the fireworks really made us miss home. It was a tough moment for us girls bloggers but we are back at the hotel now and just downed a couple beer and had a few chocolates so we are doing good now!

Have a great night bloggers! Sleep well with your loved ones and your animals -- I know I miss my charlie.

Allie, Jen, and Rebecca <3
