I took the train to Bangkok. There is now a rail link between Thanaleng, Laos and Nongkhai, Thailand. This is a view back towards the Lao side.
These guys were hanging out on the bridge. Not sure if they just like seeing the train go by or whether the cell phone reception is that much better.
I spent the next few days in Bangkok - dental work and sleeping. Finally felt some energy and walked around old neighborhoods I haven't visited in a long time.

Houses on stilts along the waterfront.
An unusual view of the Sanam Luang, the Royal Park. I remember a grassy field from 20 years ago, but with various gatherings and demonstrations, they have now paved it over.Although there were some banners in favor of one side of the current rounds of problems, there were no demonstrators so the park has become a parking lot.
With the skies looking so threatening, it wasn't long before the sky poured down on us.
View from the pedestrian overpass by the MBK shopping center, looking across at the Sky Train station. I was happy I got up the stairs before the rain started coming down.
This is my contribution to Skywatch Friday, whose members post pictures of the skies around the world.
