I was on a holiday in Thailand where the have an annual celebration 'Loi Krathong'. They build, well most people just buy, 'boats' and float them away on a river. All for good luck. The boats aren't actually boats. I wanted to build an old Dutch ship. 95% made out of banana leaves, because that's the traditional building material. Took half a day, but you get some really surpised faces for it in return. A foreigner building it's own ship for our celebration??
