Wat Don Wai market near Salaya

We took a trip out to Wat Don Wai on the west side of #Bangkok near Mahidol University and enjoyed wandering around the riverside market. Highly reccommended for travellers to see a genuine thai river market.

Ive started a bit of a new project called #youngatheart or #richardcrookesyoungatheart so expect to see mch more content around my blog.

Enjoy the video

Never a dull moment


Sitting in traffic, as anyone knows who lives in Bangkok, is something you just have to get used to. No wonder Thailand is one of the most active social media countries. You do have to find something to do to while away the hours.
This morning was no exception but Bangkok always delivers with something unusual to marvel at. I snapped this from the car as I was stuck at the lights. I was going nowhere…but this guy was different.

Hats off

You really have to take your hat off to whoever it was whose idea was to balance one of these huge engines precariously high on the back of an oversize canoe and hats off to the men who throw them around nonchalantly with one hand while flying  up and down the choppy ChaoPhraya sitting perched on wooden stools only inches away from the unguarded fanbelts. If you’ve been to Bangkok and seen these I’m sure you wont have forgotten. They never cease to amaze me. A beautiful demonstration of human ingenuity.
