I DID go to the flower market this morning.
I had a taxi drop me off from the hotel.
I suddenly found myself, (the only foreigner) amongst a sea of Thai people… which is probable because I'm in Thailand.
Gees how am I going to get back again….?
OK, the hotel is on the river, so after I photographed, I walked and walked till I found the river…
Then I knew where I was and I went back to photograph more. It was a wonderful experience. Everyone was friendly and welcoming.
(the signal is too weak here in the club to put up photos, I will do it tomorrow from home)
I have never seen so many flowers, bags and bags, 1000's of marigold flowers, can you imagine just what it looks like in the fields…?
1 dozen roses for 30B (about a dollar AU)
Orchids of every kind, greenery and jasmine…. heady scent and unimaginable beauty.
I walked on further and found the Indian Quarter, I found silks, lace, jewelry and brilliant color… what a way to end the trip.
