Took this photo from the back of a taxi doing 140 km/hr on the Mega Bridge on a sunny afternoon. This unique bridge is quite long and beautiful. It is officially named "Dipangkorn Rasmijoti Bridge". The view is just magnificient, what a pleasure taking the ride!
Check out http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mega_Bridge for more information.
Finally, http://www.youtube.com/ is accessible from Thailand after months of being blocked by all ISPs. It is the last Friday of the month today and also pay day so the traffic in Bangkok this evening is going to be totally awful, and if it rains it will get very nasty. I better beat the traffic by catching up on some YouTube vidoes instead! And catch the subway later!!!

Surprised to see a totally empty Subway train arrrive at Rama 9 station at 11 am heading for Hua Lamphong station. Except for the driver, nobody else was in there. I got into the front end and saw 3 other people board the train. What a waste of resources, it would have been better if we could ride camels or elephants instead.
