Cruising, flowers, and ramblings on my life and times
Friday, January 1, 2010
It's been 20 years since our last visit to Bangkok. The city has grown upward and outward. Lots more multi-lane highways, lots more skyscrapers, fewer tuk-tuks and more air conditioned taxis. I guess that's called progress. I find it interesting to look at the juxtaposition of modern and ancient...and you see that on the Chao Phraya River which flows through the city. Here you see the skyscapers and the old style boats--working together. I wonder how long that will last? I particularly like looking at barges plying the river as they are pulled by tiny traditional style boats.
