View from our balcony.
The arena in the distance belongs to Ramkhamhaeng University.
32 Soi Ramkhamhaeng 30, where we live and where we'll leave (by December) when we find a more permanent place between Chulalongkorn and Ramkhamhaeng Universities (Dr. Kaewwipat is a Lecturer of German at Ramkhamhaeng. But he's just Noraseth at home!)
Chao Phraya River, which bisects Bangkok proper (on the right) from the Thonburi area, which was the main capital 260 years ago. The main capital is now in Bangkok proper.
On the bus.
Note the wooden floors (and, this day, the lack of crowds).
Wai? Why? Why does he wai?
Woe is me when Ronald wais.
Aye yie yie.
Typcial street stands, the kind of which we buy our meals from on a daily basis.  Wonderful, tasty treats. My tastebuds weep just thinking about what's on the next menu ...
Ramkhamhaeng Road just at the foot of our side street (fortunately we're way down the side street). At night.  It's heavy traffic all day, too.
Music dedicated to the King:
free concert at Central World Mall.
"So we're shopping everyday Sunday at the Mall" to quote Shiana Twain ("Ka-Ching")
Hmmm ... the full bodied fish for sale, head and all.
Should I or shouldn't I
(I should, I did, you will.)
Meeting friends at the "Shark's Mouth" Thammasat University.
Looks like a lot of other people had the same idea (actually there was a graduation rehearsal that day).
Noraseth's sister Mod and their Papa.  We dined that night on fresh fish at a local riverside restaurant. This wasn't a tourist place and was a lot of fun.
Pond at Chulalongkorn University.

Another tradtional building at "the Chula", as the university is fondly called.
