street views

We are staying in an apartment in a building called "House by the Pond".

My friend Debbie asked me to describe our Bangkok neighborhood. It is really hard to put it in words. Perhaps maybe picture - two lane city side streets barely wide enough for cars to pass by each other, add street food vendors, motos weaving in and out, bumpy narrow sidewalks (not stroller friendly), little shops and great massage parlors, skyscrapers in the distance, pink or green taxis whooshing by, and the everyday afternoon rain storm. Then think - that all of that adds up to a neighborhood we have come to think of as having its own charm.

Good pictures, showing the view busy, and then clear...I bet that doesn't happen very much, though! I'm glad you are enjoying your stay ~

It is a part of the world that I am enjoying being able to see pictures of. The streets look a bit crowded, but I am sure they make the best use of the space they have.
