Thai Princess Visits Vancouver...
One of the Thai princesses, Chulabhorn, is in Vancouver at the moment on vacation. She's staying at an expensive hotel in Vancouver, and is planning on going skiing at Whistler.
I don't care if she decides to vacation here or not (although I'm glad that she likes this region of the world -she's been here several times before), but the timing of her vacation isn't the best. There's still finding bodies of people on the beaches in Thailand, and she's having mineral water steamed veggies after skiing.
On a related note, I found out yesterday that a friend of mine had family and friends of friends in Sri Lanka that got swept out to sea during the tsunami.
