Actually I’m really hoping there isn’t a Part Two but the waters everyday envelop more of Bangkok. This morning the floodwater reached the Lat Phrao intersection, inundating Vibhavadi-Rangsit road. My son bicycled the short half kilometre from our home to investigate. Here are his photos mostly taken outside the Central department store which has just finished a major renovation with, yes, a series of water fountains – they are getting a more spectacular water show than they bargained for.
Actually this is my son being melodramatic. He had to pose because he couldn’t see anyone actually looking gloomy. This is Thailand. Actually the cheery gentleman in the poster is the Bangkok Governor who is saying “We take care of you….. your whole life“.
Looking up Phon Yothin towards the Elephant Building on the Ratchda Pisek inter junction (which is more deeply flooded). Central department store to the left. The roads are acting as mini canals. The water will be deeper tomorrow.
