The water in the river Kwai is unusually clear, and being in the mountains it has speed. The pink bougainvillea above however reminds me of a flower pot by a Venice balcony. Strange how a water body adds beauty to commonplace things.
The colourful boat cruising by above adds its charms to the evening. I found my trip to Kanchanaburi really engrossing. Once you are inside the river, you are in another world.
But just come back to the bus terminus behind, and its almost like being back in Bangkok. The usual coffee shops, food markets and the large market of semi-precious rubies!
