10,000 Wishes

I just attended the annual Yi Ping sky lantern launch in Chiang Mai, Thailand.

For the second year in a row, I watched as 10,000 lanterns rose into the night sky: each one holding the wishes, hopes and dreams of those who released it.

Truly a moving and unforgettable experience.

For the whole story, check out 10,000 Lanterns Rising in Unison.
