My overseas colleagues celebrated their independence day, which is seriously flag-bedecked. The photo above is the street leading to the palace. The photo below shows the children's parade, which includes almost all the schools in the capital city.
It's popular for people to wear the costume of their region. I made several co-workers to promise to send photos of their families, and those were fun to see. Here are the Crown Prince, Crown Princess, and their children.
The little princess was old enough to march with her school for the first time.
It would be fun to see the festivities in person someday.
