Dear Family and Friends,
(Have any of you lunatics conjured up the connection between Chanthaburi and bunny rabbits?)
Across the waters of the Gulf of Siam, about a forty minute ferry ride from Koh Chang, lies the city of Trat. North of Trat is the city of Chanthaburi.
In Chanthaburi I took my usual stroll, but this time I had a destination in mind - the Holy Mary Catholic Church. The largest Catholic Church in Thailand was built by the French during their occupation of Trat and Chanthaburi Provinces from 1893 to 1905. This area borders Cambodia - part of colonial French Indochina.
