Thailand: On The Street Part 1

The civil commotion in Thailand has ended. Viva la liberte. Things are getting back to normal and I believe the town will become lively again. Here are some shots captured while walking on the street.

Local folks follow the tradition from the days of Buddha to serve breakfast or lunch offering (dana) to the monks walking barefoot on the street with an alm bowl in their hands.

Other than the reclining Buddha, Wat Pho is also famous for its Traditional Thai Massage school. I saw this funny banner of a massage parlour with a sketch depicting "Herble" Compress massage.

The lady carrying lottery tickets in a folder is trying to sell lottery to the uncle during his morning walk.

Saw this when I was on my way to Vimanmek Mansion, world's largest teakwood mansion. The officer is transferring throne for the Royal to somewhere else.
