Following the stream of traffic in Bangkok, Thailand (pano #4)

I will not get bored with the lively and colorful streets of Bangkok. The elevated sky train walkway in the intersection of Ploenchit and Rajadamri streets offers interesting view e.g. to Thao Mahaprom, aka Erawan shrine.

    I’ve become a total wet blanket about cities. As a youth I thought they were wondrous creations, and lived in several of the world’s largest, revelling in the great architecture and especially the anonymity they afford; now, all I see is noise, pollution, a few fine structures and a great deal of poverty, waste and mess.
