Kung Fu Hustle

Here is an old woman I met in the back streets of Bangkok. She was with her granddaughter and they were serving soup out of their garage / kitchen / home.

Abandoned Temple in Thailand

Here is another temple I found while getting lost on purpose through the steamy backroads of Bangkok.

Chinatown in Bangkok

Every now and then I would pass an area of Chinatown which smelled, well, kinda like this…

Kids under the Bridge

Here is my longboat captain flying under a bridge in back canals of Thailand at 50 knots. After I pass, the kids go diving wantonly into our wake.

This was certainly a rip-roaring ride and not for the faint of heart. We went off the main river in Bangkok and found ourselves deep into a series of canals surrounded by collapsing metallic homes and colorful happy kids. I didn’t get a chance to ask any of them if they had an XBox Live account. This longboat only cost a few US dollars to rent for a few hours, but you can’t put a price on seeing a variety of dead mammals and mutated pachyderms floating down the river beside you.

I got the feeling that Buddha was watching me

As I was strolling through this steamy complex of temples, I came across this one just as some stormy clouds were moving in.  Buddha was sitting up there acting all smarmy like he knew everything in his nirvana air-conditioned glassed cave.  I didn’t want enlightenment or anything so grandiose – just a tall cool glass of lemonade would have been fine.  But no, he just sat there.
