Bangkok Water Too Much

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

In 2011, Thailand was hit by flooding said to be the worst in the past 50 years. From the northern provinces of the country, water runoffs also flowed to the capital Bangkok, through the river Chao Phraya. Though not all, street stalls remained open, markets operated, and people traveled. Despite the hardship that a number of Bangkokians had to face due to the flood, life went on.

(The title Bangkok Water Too Much is from local taxi drivers who, often with limited English, tried to explain to me about the flood that was happening in the city.)
