From Hell Fire to Giant Trees

This really is a grab bag of Kanchanaburi pictures.

Starting with this very impressive museum.

I have visited it several times, but it still hits hard...

Cruising along the River Kwae.

Turning around with those engines is quite a sight!

This is a Mon temple.

Welcome to the classroom!

Early morning monk doing his sweeping duties.

The main path of the village.

Mon dance performance: loud, dissonant, uneven, but also charming and fascinating as well.

Hard to take good pics with just a mobile...

The Death Railway train...

Third-class wooden benches.

Say Cheese...

A train ride with a view...

Probably the biggest tree in Kanchanaburi.

Only a panorama shot can do it justice!

Grab bag maybe, but a nice grab bag. Thanks for posting, brings back memories of my early tour leaders days, '93-'94, when I often visited Kanchanaburi, rode that train, long-tailed along the Khwae, saw that Mon song-and-dance (near those 'Jungle Rafts'?). The museum is of later date though.

You have created a strange, but interesting, collection of images, here, KK. I have not seen that tree before, but have seen others like it.
