Klong Banglamphu, Bangkok, by Keith Miller
Graphite, 10in. by 4in.

The Klong, (canal) Banglamphu which flows into the Chao Phyra River is lined with some pretty ramshackle wooden houses, but is leafy and cooler and quieter than the surrounding city streets- an ideal spot to withdraw from the Bangkok bustle.

On  Banglamphu Canal, Bangkok, Thailand by Keith Miller

Klong Banglamphu is one of the few canals in  Bangkok which still  has old residential houses and shops. It makes for an interesting morning, wandering along the old waterway observing the life of the City.

Saithong Guesthouse, Chang Mai, Thailand, by Keith Miller

In the heart of old Chang Mai is the Saithong Guesthouse where I spent a few days. From the photos on the web it appears to have gone a little more upscale since my backpacking days there.

Tha Ton, Thailand by Keith Miller

Chalk pastel, sepia, 12in. by 4in.

I spent a day or two in this very quiet Thai town on the Kok River in the Golden Triangle. They say it’s a bit busier nowadays but not by much. The meditative quality of the place has even attracted a few permanent foreign residents.

Mae Sai Guesthouse, Thailand by Keith Miller

Some of the bamboo guest rooms at this place are built on pilings above the river.  Across the narrow Mae Sai River is Myanmar, (Burma)- close enough to paddle across.
