Thailand, the Land of the Free, or Mueang Thai, Nation of Free People as the Thai like to express their pride for never having been colonized. Or you
might be familiar with Thailand, the Land of Smiles.
I arrived to Thailand a couple of weeks ago and have been spending some time in Bangkok due to some business obligations. I like to travel the river
by means of public transport and never get tired of watching the lively activities of the colorful boats and local accommodations along the banks.
Later today I might embark on a trip to the north east to visit a festival and then hopefully further down the Mekong River to visit ancient cave
paintings in a national park before having to be back in Bangkok for more duties.
It is the end of the rainy season. A beautiful time you might know if you ever have spent some time in a tropical monsoon climate. It has been
raining for the last two days and I find myself spending a lot of time under cover in guesthouse lobbies, on the internet and being able to contribute
a bit to ATS.
Maybe some of you share my love for this part of the world, maybe some would like to know more and maybe for others it brings back memories.
