Phra Suman Fort. Bangkok

Phra Sumen Fort is one of two last bastions build by Rama I which have been preserved.  At the end of 18th century city walls and 14 forts surrounded 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 ?

Greetings to Arundhati Roy 🙂


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.


Taxi in Phnom Penh.

The speed is moderate, price is cheap, life is wonderful.


I wonder whether those bricks in the wall are original. Hanoi

One of the gates leading to Old Quarter in Hanoi. There is still a lot of charm in the old town. Fidel from Havana should ask the comrades in Hanoi for an advise how to prevent decay.

P.S.

I bet the brick wall is original, isn’t it ?


The street in Ayutthaya.

Ayutthaya was the capital city of Siam for over 400 years.  Historians estimated that the city’s population reached 1,000,000 inhabitants in the early 18th century. Today Ayutthaya is one of typical, provincial towns with the population below one hundred thousand. The ruins of old city destroyed by the Burmese army are located near the main street.


Individual speed of movement in Kolkata’s B.B.D. Bagh.

People, cars, trams, all this jazz and clamor with unique charm. One of the most populous urban area in the world has own nature.


Street trade in Guwahati. Assam

Cotton stuff directly from the street in Assam’s capital city. The women selling cloths are persistent and indefatigable. They work from dawn till dusk, or longer.


OM and Swastika protect better than a motor insurance. Assam

Motorbikes in downtown of  Guwahati city.


Lights of China Town in Bangkok.

Le transport urbain à Siliguri. West Bengal

Siliguri est une ville sur la route de Calcutta à Darjeeling.
 La ville indienne typique avec ses rues poussiéreuses et les habitants pittoresques.
