Visiting the Temple of the Four Faced Buddha in Bangkok we found people giving thanks to the accompaniment of musicians and dancers. This temple is located across the street from the area where the Red Shirts protested in the recent unrest.
While shopping in the Chatuchuk weekend market a melodious noise drew me around the corner to a shop in the Chinese area. Wind chimes of all kinds! There are approximately 9,000 shops in this gigantic market. You can find just about anything you want, clothes, jewelry, furniture, household goods, food….etcetera, etcetera and so forth.
Around every corner in Thailand there is something to dazzle the eyes and engage the senses.
