I love our local railway crossing; it is so back-in-time.
I love all these Rain Tree* dishes.
* The Rain Tree is a largely buffet restaurant in the Plaza Athenee hotel.
It's a sunny late afternoon in Bangkok. A pleasant surprise as we are well into the rainy season.
Today is the Thai Queen's 80th birthday. In Thailand Mother's Day falls on the Queen's birthday ... just as Father's Day coincides with the King's birthday.
Where are these two girls taking me ... at 130 kilometers per hour.
Our first stop was at Watcharee's mother's house just outside of Sena.
Our second Mother's Day stop was at Watcharee's grandmother's house. It was here that most of the Samsee family gathered for a festive Thai soup dish. I had 4 helpings.
Next: Part III
