Bangkok

It was amazing flying in, first thing in the morning.

I woke up just in tome to look down, and underneath the plane were canals snaking through green paddy fields, with Bangkok city in a shroud of haze - right there amongst it.

I haven't done too much exploring - just took a long walk around the area we are staying...about an hour in the wrong direction. It was interesting though, and a good thing to just take in the everyday. Traffic and motorcycles, dogs everywhere, road side stalls selling fried chicken and fish, and ladies stringing together fragrant arrangements of flowers for shrines.

And amongst the grey haze and concrete expressways, bursts of vivid colours.
