Movement of People from the River to the Streets

I try, I fail. Repeatedly. Its challenging not to peek at the local news, creeping on the screen or plastered on the news-stand, and ones that people eagerly. Thailand has a habit of showering me with moments of solitude, and often the flood of news, gossips and half-baked stories reach my ears and eyes.

Despite it all, I travel beyond borders of Bangkok's uncountable districts, from the concrete ornamented landscape to the crowded communities. I wander, pausing in between steps, and then I wonder whether a city this mighty has felt the impact of the new order, the political gaffe, and perhaps the error of social engineering. But then again, Bangkok has a habit of forgetting its roots, as it depends heavily on the nectar of dreams... and fancies.

The pier offers access to affordable transportation, where boats wait in a timeless embrace on the river.
