Sunday Post: wonderful

Many years ago, more years ago than I care to think about, my father went to Thailand to give a lecture in Bangkok. He’s always liked taking photos on his travels and he brought back some wonderful ones of the Royal Palace in Bangkok; so wonderful that I longed to go and see it for myself. His photos of the temple guardians always stuck in my memory. In 1998 I got the chance to go to Thailand for the first time but I didn’t have a digital camera then. I had to wait until 2005 to re-visit this p(a)lace of pure enchantment, filled as it is with a riot of colour and pattern, gold everywhere and mythical creatures galore.
