Photographer's Note

The monsoon rain which turned Bangkok's street into river in the past few days certainly was much more heavier then the flooding seen in this photograph taken at Charoen Krung in front of the Robinson Department Store near to the Chao Phraya river. That Saturday it was pouring down suddenly and there was some flooding, bad enough the bring the traffic to a standstill. Such flooding may happen from time to time but after some hours the water will be gone. However the rain has been so heavily lately that some of the main streets in Bangkok have been flooded for more then 24 hours courtesy of global warming.
