-- Visiting the Thai Wikipedia and Thailand --

In the interest of featuring languages which have not previously
appeared in "What's making you happy this week?", I decided to visit
the Thai language Wikipedia. There I learned that Thailand has two
calendar systems. [1] [2] Also, I found images from
อุทยานแห่งชาติภูซาง, known in English as Phu Sang National Park [3]
[4] , which appears to be a place that I would enjoy visiting. One of
the photos of a waterfall was a finalist for Commons Picture of the
Year in 2017.

* Picture of a hot waterfall that is in the park, Namtok Phu Sang:

* Picture of a boy in a waterfall at the park. This photo was a
finalist for Commons Picture of the Year in 2017:

* The animals that are depicted below are members of species that are
found in Phu Sang National Park *
