But when he heard the news about the death of the king he decided to start walking to the capital to show solidarity with the grieving Thai people. He reckons on walking 50 kilometers a day and arriving in about 15 days.

Michael, dressed in a black shirt and carrying a backpack, said that that people wanted to donate items to help him on his way but he has accepted nothing. He just wants to have his picture taken with Thais along the way.

His message to the Thai people was simple: “Stay strong and love each other”.
