THAILAND DIARIES: STREETS OF BANGKOK, PART 2

Here comes part two of the streets of Bangkok - a different perspective as I promised, and different kinds of streets - the wet kinds! 

We realized quickly that using the public ferries whenever possible was the best way to get from one neighborhood to another. Fast, cooling and providing a different view and angle.

Feeding the huge fish in the river with the bread you can buy directly at the pier seems to be one of the local's favourite pastimes during their lunch break. Some of us joined the fun, too.  (others didn't...)

    Thanks for sharing your Thailand! Loved the small brigde and what is in those big plastic bags..? I wonder.

    @Kreetta: That's bread to feed the fish!

    Thailand is definitely on my list of places I want to travel to. My old coworker is from there and he offered to show us around and pass us along to his friends in different places. Now I have to check out your walk through Bangkok.

    @Nina: Yes, you should definitely go - especially if you have a local friend there who can show you around!
    @Mette: Thank you for stopping by Mette - I hope to post the market pics next week!
    @Tina: I think the fishfeeding had some religious component to it as well, I also saw some girls who bought fish to let them then free in the river after they said a prayer. Tried to find out more about it but wasn't successful!

    Brrrrr those fish fighting over a piece of bread... there are so many! Totally get why "some of you" didn't join the fun ;) Looks like you had a fascinating and different kind of Thailand trip. Looking forward to more to come!
