Street Art - construction and destruction


Street Art in Phuket has been changed for a number of reasons - Alex Face painted on the side of a building which it was not approve that he could do - so it was removed.

Then there was the sad passing of His Royal Highness King Bhumibol the Great and paintings were put up for respect.

But then they a crumbing building began to be demolished...



It was Alex Face...



Then a newer building was demolished...



This was it before...



I hope that they are safe...


No name burgers - a place to visit?

"Former London boxer Gareth Payne lost both his legs in a horrific train accident in the UK seventeen years ago. Today, he battles to make it in Bangkok by selling burgers on the street. 
Photos of Payne grilling meat at his humble burger cart, called “No Name Burgers,” have caught the attention of local media this week. Many Thais honor him as a good example of someone who doesn’t give up."
This is certainly somewhere to visit in Bangkok - have you?


Bangkok is a gigantic park


Bangkok is one gigantic park - wonderful Google Maps - just when I am moving jobs there...



Oh no it isn't - do you believe everything on your phones?




Some people don't stop looking... 

(Sorry this was a video of a person on a phone walking into a water fountain)


Some power banks can't fly...



Well I was a little confused when I saw this bin at Bangkok Airport - are they stopping the power bank from flying?


Then I found this one - do you know what capacity your charger is?
