    A Charoen Krung Ramble

    ...mostly in the sois 36-40: we wandered into Calvary Catholic church (Kalawar being a bad transliteration of Calvary, I assume), the Hong Wong Kung shrine and the dilapidated So Heng Tai Chinese mansion (for an iced coffee). The mansion is also a beagle puppy mill and exotic fish-breeding estrablishment. To my surprise, we later happened on to an abandoned and forlorn Fiat 500. I last saw these in Addis Abeba, Ethiopia where they were used as taxis: brought back memories of squeezing into the old cinquecentos for about a quarter...

    A good mate of mine has a bicycle tour business (and a Thai cooking school) based in the wet market next to Robinsons on Charoen Krung. The guided tours go all through the back alleys and are great fun.
