Calator in Thailanda 16. Wat Doi Suthep (2) / Traveller in Thailand 16. Wat Doi Suthep (2)


In the courtyard of the Wat Doi Suthep a lot of things draw my attention. There were so many architectural details, structures and colors, doors and windows but also a lot of interesting people around! A lot of subjects for a photographer!

As everywhere, a big postret of the King, suroounded by flowers can be seen. In few days, Thailand will celebrate His Majesty’s birthday.

From the large terrace, panorama of Chiang Mai is to be seen but not too clearly. 

In the songthaew which brought us back in the town, we saw the Doi Suthep Mt. at a distance, behind us.

In curtea complexului ne asteapta lucruri noi. Fie ca este vorba despre statui, despre ferestre sau usi bogat ornamentate, cu mare migala si culori vii, despre cladiri sau aranjamente florale, fiecare colt ne face sa zabovim.
 De fapt, nici nu stii daca sa-ti indrepti atentia spre ele sau mai mult spre oameni?!
Ca peste tot in Thailanda, fotografia regelui este la loc de cinste, inconjurata de flori. Peste cateva zile, se va sarbatori ziua sa de nastere.
De pe terasa larga, scaldata in soare, poti privi orasul Chiang Mai. Se pare ca rareori privelistea este clara. N-am reusit nici noi sa o vedem mai bine. Sub noi, padurea se intinde pana la marginea orasului.

Mai vizitam un ultim viharn mic, dupa care plecam inapoi in oras.
Vazut din songthaew, Muntele Doi Suthep ramane in urma.

Intr-adevar,Thailanda este o tara ce iti ofera la tot pasul lucruri deosebite din ce am vazut in prezentarile tale.Vorba ta...nu sti la care sa te uiti mai intii,la oameni sau la statui si ornamente?
