Real life in Thailand, and some of the surrounding countries.
Join me at ‘X’ (Twitter) for Thailand travel and general chat.
I’m not rich, I just got the ‘right’ jobs. One of the companies I worked for employed Filipinos. I made some good friends… they invited me to their homes. And so my relationship with Asia began.
The Nine Emperor Gods festival is celebrated throughout Southeast Asia at the start of the ninth lunar month of the Chinese calendar.
In Thailand, it’s celebrated as the Vegetarian Festival. In some parts of Southern Thailand, unusual religious rituals are performed, and exciting parades take place… not for the faint-hearted, though.
Thailand’s railway is old and outdated. Usually, it’s quicker to take a bus. But changes are afoot… new trains, stations, and tracks.
In this project, I capture the charm of Thailand’s railway, before it is swept away in a tide of modernization.
Buildings, boats, buses… whatever. Things that catch my eye as I travel.
Some of the strange things I’ve found at Buddhist Temples in Thailand.
Much of it is Buddhist Hell, which can be rather gruesome. Some of the statues are truly horrifying.
