4. Enjoying the city
Just a few days before the UN's ruling on the Preah Vihear Hindu temple in the border region between Thailand and Cambodia the tensions are rising here in the Thai capital.
This morning I read in the newspaper that, along the border, Thai military has installed loudspeakers to communicate to the other side its intentions and to avoid an all-out war after the international court announces the decision. It is somewhat of a concern to me since this region lies on my intended motorcycle route. We will see.
For now I am enjoying the city.

|Feeding the hungry. Express boat landing.|
|"I No Signal!". In fact that really never happens in the city. The coverage and 3G+ and sometimes 4G is excellent.|
|No litter box.|
|Shop selling amazing bonsai. The plants in the picture are some 100-150 com in height! Stunning!|
