KO KRET






I also had a few images of Paris under the snow to post here, but since the winter is not totally gone yet, I will stick to warmer images. Ko Kret is a small island on the Chao Phraya river in Bangkok. I rode a bike for a couple of hours there, feeling like the city was miles and miles away: only trees, dying dogs, water, and Buddhas. At some point I took the wrong path and entered a schoolyard; the teacher saw me, and immediately asked his young students to perform a traditional thai dance for me. Their dance teacher was 70 or 80; her hands moved like animals, or leaves in the wind, or waves. What a gift...

Salut Flore!
tu peux tout essayer mais tu dois savoir que ca n'est pas un poisson-volant... c'est le puffer fish :-)
