Santa spotted in Jomtien
Santa Claus and Rudolf started their journey to Thailand
from Sweden. As Rudolf thought the temperature in Thailand was too high, he
and Santa Claus agreed that Santa would use another animal more suitable
during Santaís rounds in Thailand. Rudolf would spend some relaxing time
in the mountains around Chiang Mai while Santa Claus, Anders Weilander, did
his rounds in Thailand on a huge elephant.
This picture shows Santa visiting NPC Beach Club in Jomtien. Since none
of the houses in the village had chimneys and the constructions were not
strong enough for big elephants, Santa decided to come by road. Santa spent
several hours with small and big kids in the village who assembled at the
residence of the Moore family. It must be added that reindeers have been
seen in the Chiang Mai area and some even claimed to have seen flying
elephants on New Years Eve.
