“When you ain’t being slowly grilled at a thousand in the shade, you are sousing in floods, or the house is falling about your devoted ears in a thunderstorm …

‘There is a filthy old river, the colour of milk chocolate, flavoured with the juices of countless defunct and deeply lamented household pets, and one’s servants consider this liquid such sacred nectar that they will wash your socks in it, and then make your tea with the same…Otherwise, of course, the place is all right.”

Eric Read, from Chequered Leaves in 1913

    1. I am so overwhelmed and a bit embarrassed to encounter a comment weighing so much acclaim! My heartfelt gratitude for you 🙂 Tambourine is my favorite song, so is that guy !!! I hope I can write more with better standard and never fail the motivation you create for me.
      About Vietnam, I have volumes to write. Just wondering when to start!!!

    1. Haha. I was in fact put off by the Lumpini park, But the water monitor made it up for me 😀 hey are not crocodiles but big, really big lizards. Thais eat them in Northern park of the country 🙂


  2. This is a beautiful post about Bangkok and I love your intro. With all the sightseeing, I didn’t get in much shopping time (plus my husband has no patience for it). Next time I’ll have to spend some time doing this on my own. Great photos and very nice blog.

    1. haha. Bangkok is a craze among Indian female population for their quirky collection. and it is cheaper than what Indian e commerce sells. Do visit Thailand sometime. Quite an experience!


  4. Great pictures of one of my favourite places ( but only for a few days) at a time….I love China Town and always stay at the Shanghai Mansion it is so quirky..just an amazing place and central to the markets which I love . Good post 🙂

    1. The world is full of amazing places and we only have fewer days to live by, with every sundown! BKK is great, I love it. I have seen Shanghai Mansion but never noticed the quirkiness though. To China Town, hell yes, all the love! I cannot get over their food honestly 🙂 Thanks a lot and welcome to orangewayfarer!

      1. You have to go inside..They even have a dressing up room on one of the landings …such fun with old fashioned telephones, much and the rooms so cool 🙂 And yes every sundown is one less day so we need to live every day as if it was our last 🙂
