These are selected from my photos from the first half of vacation, as I traveled through southern and then northern Thailand. They are in chronological order. I will add a little bit of commentary to locate and identify each. I will leave them all on the medium size for loading and you can always double click them to enlarge them. It is only a smattering, but hopefully it will supplement the dashed entries I managed to write earlier.
This is the large city park near the Northern Bus Terminal. It was 6 am and I was walking to catch the train to the south to join my scuba team, after a 2 hour bus wait and a twelve hour bus ride to BKK. Really a lovely park and a lovely morning. Quiet and mostly to myself since it just opened. I can't imagine a walkway like this across the water surviving US Liability laws.
I might have had the park to myself, but not the skytrain. They open at 6 am and that means a packed rush hour mob. The skytrain is cheap and clean and efficient. What I didn't know was that I could have transferred and taken the underground metro directly to the train station.Here are one of two sign translation fails from the bus and skytrain terminals. There is also a store called "Book Smile".
