Today we took again a short express boat thrill ride - this time to the Grand Palace pier. Welcome to Disney Land! I know this is something real and different - but the crowds of people, the colorfulness of the buildings and the overall amount of decoration is very similar. It's like if in Europe a complete village including churches, palaces and ordinary buildings had been built in overloaded, bright color baroque style. When we entered, the man controlling the visitor’s bags asked where we were from - he hadn’t ever heard of Switzerland.
The air was already humid, but got even more humid after a sudden downpour out of a blue sky, and the sweat peals were rolling.
- Big rivers close to the sea follow the tides. In front of our hotel room, tons of green branches and leaves transporting any trash float from left to right in the morning, somewhen later from right to left.
- When the green phase on pedestrian traffic lights nears its end, the little traffic-light man starts to hurry. Good idea, interestingly (or luckily?) it has no equivalent for cars...
