    For weeks, hundreds of men have been toiling in Naypyidaw, digging trenches along all the main roads (no JCBs here!).

    Is it for new water pipes? electricity cables?

    No - it is to lay high-speed, fibre-optic cables, to provide fast internet and TV channel service in the city.

    This sounds like a great idea to make the city more attractive to businesses. If you look at this photo, there are no overhead power cables or telephone cables - everything was buried underground when the city was built, (no spider's web of ugly cables that you see in Thailand).

    The railway musem at Chatuchak Park, formerly funded privately, it ran out of steam last year. The exhibits are now gathering dust inside. Used to be a good way to kill an hour back in the day. All those old locomotivess..






    Chatuchak Park yesterday







    Design doesn't appear to be that typically Thai. When running round the park I use the clock as a rough guide to lap timings.
    Rebar framing in place for a BTS pier.

    That is pretty smart and it makes the city look pretty or at least prettier than having cables all over the place. Many times in Thailand I've wanted to take a pic, but hard to take a nice pic when there are a zillion black wires all over the place. I wonder how much the people get paid for doing that hard labour? Not much, I'd imagine.

    Power cut last sunday at 11pm, snake on the overhead cables they said. So at 11.45pm I decide to piss off to a hotel not far away, called My Bed Ratchada.

    In the morning I looked out the window and was horrified to see that the ramshackle tower block Ratchada Pavilion is still standing.



    I lived there from 2005-6 and it was ok but not in the best shape. Was on the 19th floor and took these photos.

    A lot of condo blocks have gone up since then. Looking slightly left towards MRT Lat Prao park & ride building



    Looking down to the right towards the Central criminal court, Ratchapisek Road. Elephant building in the distance.



    Looking straight ahead from the balcony



    Almost the same shot but to the left slightly



    Slightly more left. Pollution quite terrible.
