Corner View: Out the Car Window.

Here are some pictures for this weeks Corner View.   The theme - “Outside the car window”. 

I’ve complained many a times on this blog about the traffic here in Bangkok but for this weeks theme – sitting in traffic was actually a good thing. 

Oh and before I share my pictures let me reveal a little bit more about me and my life here in Thailand.   I, actually we (my family) have a driver.  The company my husband works for discourages us from driving. So they provide vehicle and driver.   2 years into this assignment I  still haven’t decided whether i like having a driver or not.  I will share about this in another post…. someday.

Anyway so here are my pictures.  these pictures where taken on our way back from downtown Bangkok.

Motorcycles – and many of them.  It is the quickest way to get around. (if you are daring enough)

Temples.  And there are temples everywhere. 

Reverence for the Buddhist faith is very strong in Thai culture, so there are temples (wat’s – as they say in Thai) everywhere be it in the city or village.   These temples are here to serve the society. And also great tourist attractions.

The toll – before we get on the expressway home.

The view from the expressway (it was  a clear day) home.

So there it is.  My pictures outside my car window.

I wish my husband´s company would give me a driver. At least this week..so I could have made my Corner View. ;)
But what an amazing ride you gave us. One day I have to see this for myself!
Have a great week, Jeannette

Francesca said...

I can imagine it'd be a big daring to ride a bike in heavy traffic. I personally dislike driving, and would welcome anyone who'd it for me!

A Captured Reflection said...

I just love your photos, you always capture the theme so perfectly. I think I could get used to a driver, I don't actually like driving very much as I have a gift for getting lost.

Wow, now that's a sight to see everyday and I would love to have a driver! I could sit back and relax and do my nails or something!!!!
It's a far cry from rural GA that's for sure. Thanks so much for sharing and visiting my blog.

Such beauty surrounds you there. The temples are gorgeous. The expressway reminds me of the Los Angeles Interstate Highways.

These temples are gorgeous and look like castles...
There are lots of temples in Japan too but they are more simple and less colorful... Thank you for sharing!
