WE HAVE ALL HEARD AND COMMISERATED WITH THAILAND'S FLOOD WOES BUT THE GOOD NEWS IS THAT THE WATER'S RECEDING FAST AND DROPPING AS YOU READ THIS!
THE MEDIA LOVE TO PLAY UP THE SITUATION AND DRAMATISE EVERYTHING BUT THE TRUTH IS THAT CENTRAL BANGKOK WHERE TOURISTS STAY HAS ALWAYS BEEN BONE DRY AND LIFE WAS AS NORMAL AS ME PRAYING TO BUDDHA.
Other parts are still flooded but most tourist attractions are back or on the way back to normal, due to Buddha's blessings.
But why believe me when you can see these images for yourself? The water marks are still there but the water's gone!
The water mark shows how high the area was flooded but is now dry
This Reclining Buddha has been cleaned and restored to its original, pre-flood condition and there are no signs it was ever submerged as the cleaning was so thorough!
The grass is green, the sky is blue and all is becoming well again
There are little signs this area was flooded only recently!
Khao San in central Bangkok continues to throb as per usual!
