Phra Suman Fort. Bangkok

Warm evening in Georgetown. Penang

I have been visiting Georgetown repeatedly. It is a hot place all year. The evenings offer pleasant cooling.


Khao San Road – Bangkok.

Famous Khao San in Banglamphu area is short street with overpriced backpacker hotels. The shopping is much more interesting than a stay overnight there.


Indian entrepreneur in Kolkata.

The beginnings tend to be difficult. You sell one fruit, then two fruits. One day you will get a capital for 10 fruits. So, maybe a bank loan ? A mission impossible ?

Auto rickshaw in Kolkata.

Auto rickshaw is a cult vehicle in Asia. The three wheeled cart with engine is the most efficient and economical means of transport in the largest cities in India.


Bus line 68 in Bangkok.

The ordinary bus line 68 ( ticket 6,50 baht ) used to be green – white.

The passangers of green-white buses have to jump on the bus. The drivers stop only for several  seconds at the bus stops. Will the repainted bus change a bad reputation ? I doubt it. Definitely the orange bus is not for old people 🙂

By the way, if you feel young the line #68 is between Bang Pa Kaew and Bang Lamphu.


Democracy Monument – Bangkok.

One of the Bangkok’s squares which I pass frequently. May storms herald approaching rainy season in Thailand.


Flower market – Kolkata.

Malik Ghat Flower Market in Kolkata.


Tuk tuk in Jakarta is called bajaj.

If you like tuk tuk’s, you should take a joyride by bajaj in Jakarta. The entire range of city’s new experiences is gauranteed. Just be ready ! The seat is less comfortable than in Thailand, the visibility very limited and the car exhaust depressing.
