Thai Shadow Puppets

Headed into Takuapa for a Shadow Puppet show in late February.  This was for a celebration of Traditional Thai Culture and one of the highlights was the shadow puppet show.  A massive stage was set up with a white screen and the puppeteer was behind it.  His voice was broadcast.  It seemed to have quite the humour as there were plenty of giggles and guffaws throughout. I didn’t know what they were saying but some jokes came across anyhow.  
Turns out the puppeteer is famous nation wide and …  He’s blind.  What talent!    Anyway, it was a very cool thing to experience.
