Riverside of Bangkok, Thailand
formerly the country of Siam

Boats of many types plied the current in Bankok Riverboats in Bangkok vary in size and materials, reflecting ingenuity by their owners
   
When there was a King of Siam, he traveled in golden style When the King of Siam ruled, he traveled in golden gondolas
   
Roofs of temples soared Temples reflected the soaring spirits of their worshipers
   
This water side street was so overgrown with water hyacynith the boat motor choked. Our guide rowed us to open water.
   
Many elegant homes lined the part of the river not choked with water hyacinths
   
Friends from New York grin happily on this water tour - a bonus when ice in Seattle delayed our outbound flight.
