A chilled day today, lingering over breakfast and then taking in a small exhibition by Mozambiquan artist Dino Jetha of “psikhelekedana” or wooden miniatures of everyday life.

After a relaxing day I was ready to head out again and explore, this time to the far Southwest corner of the city where besides a freeway and opposite a very Thai rural-style street market sits “The Rome” -a Thai/Italian restaurant complete with its own semi-Colloseum.

In the sun’s dying rays, I found this beautiful temple on the way back from The Rome. It is the perfect distillation of Bangkok with its ornate Chinese pagoda and Hindu altar fronted by rows of wooden elephants and zebras.

Shazam!

29 07 2017

Here is a fun discovery: the shazam phone app works surprisingly well at identifying the luuk thung songs favoured by Bangkok’s taxi drivers. The music in the city’s taxis is often quite good but up until now I have had no way of identifying the singers or ever hearing the songs again. Technology to the rescue!
