Thailand, part deux.

This is the second time I've been to Thailand. This time for a long weekend. Next time FOR LIFE!

This quiet street struck me as quiet, and calm. Like my experience in Thailand. Not too much going on, not too much to do, and lots of time on your hands.

These truck-taxis are called "songthaews." you just jump on and off. Maybe like the cable cars in San Francisco.

Here's a fancy ghosthouse. The next shot is a close-up of the mirrors that are used to cover the shrine. This kind of mirror covering is used on many Thai temples.

Another shot of the sad sunrise. I've left Thailand twice, and both times felt a longing to return. It seems to me that Thailand is truly the Land of Smiles... I lived in Hawaii for 13 years, and never felt the "aloha" that I felt in Thailand. Honolulu, eat your heart out.
