A few fairly random pictures from Bangkok today. This was day 3 here in the city. It is becoming more familiar – well in a little way. At least the boats and the sky train have been mastered.
Traditional Thai doorways and window are often wider at the bottom than the top. This isn’t a distortion of the camera lens. This was an entrance to a Temple. (Not sure if that is really the correct word)
Around the edge of the courtyard is a covered walkway
And under that covered walkway are different Buddha images
the inside –
The walls are all painted
Another place we visited had a standing Buddha
I must find out the significance of the hand posture on this one –
The religious buildings have wonderful decorations
We passed this Chinese school
Oh why can’t British ones be so colourful?
I thought the streets in Chinatown were narrow
We walked a little further and I understood what the guidebook meant about narrow streets. Motorbike drove along here!
The way home was via the new overhead railway which is a model of efficiency. You don’t see signs like this on the underground –
Tomorrow it’s off to Koh Samui.
