Another cremation in our mountain village

Cremation in Nan - Thailand

To begin with the end .... smoke going up from the crematorium of our village. There are many old people living in our village. So yes there a few cremations, actually 7 already in the 6 months we are living here in a village of about 1000 people. I made a photo serie of the all ritual that starts from moving the coffin to the cremation area that is just outside of the village. Following is a small selection of photos of the process of cremation.
