Back from Holiday
"Long Tail" passenger boat on the river in Bangkok
This post probably "should" have been written before the one below, but then I've never been an organised person!
Barbara and I have just returned from a holiday in Thailand, since B was finishing her PhD we did not get a holiday in the summer (Christmas-February) nor in July (break between the semesters) so we arranged one in the mid-semester break - and a great break it was too! Thailand is a fine place to spend a vacation, good cheap food, interesting things to see and friendly helpful people.
The klong behind our BKK hotel
In this post I'll not have time to mention much - too much marking and too many emails came in while we were away :( - but as an excuse for putting up a couple of holiday snaps I'll just ask, with all the traffic on the river, like the "long tail" above, and the thriving commuter route along the klongs (canals) that seem to shift almost as many people during the rush hours as the Metro does (right) why don't they call Bangkok "the Venice of Asia"?
BTW I am hosting this month's Biblical Studies Carnival, so please be on the lookout for posts (about biblical studies whether on biblioblogs or elsewhere) to nominate for mention, please particularly if you read blogs that are outside my usual reading (mainly Hebrew Bible related - see the blogroll on the right for a list) make a special effort to nominate a post or two otherwise I risk letting the side down and not including much Christian Testament material!
