Hundreds of people braved the wind and rain on Oct. 16, to pay respects to Thailand’s King Bhumibol Adulyadej, the world’s longest reigning monarch.
The gathering, at Gas Works Park, was organized by the Thai Association of Washington State.
One attendee said, “We stood in the rain today. But it cannot compare with all the hard work that he has done for Thailand. We love our king.”
Adulyadej passed away on Oct. 13 at age 88. He was on the throne for 70 years.
