Welcome Thailand!

This morning I am delighted to welcome Thailand to Texas. Yindī t̂xnrạb! (Yin-dee-ton-rab)

Fun facts:

Bangkok, the capital, is known to Thais as Krung Thep Maha Nakho, but its full ceremonial name is Krungthepmahanakhon Amonrattanakosin Mahintharayutthaya Mahadilokphop Noppharatratchathaniburirom Udomratchaniwetmahasathan Amonphimanawatansathit Sakkathattiyawitsanukamprasit. 169 letters. Yep.

Kitti's hog-nosed bat – thought to be the world’s smallest mammal – is found in Thailand. It weighs just two grams.
