2011, Day 234 - Aqueous market

One of Thailand's iconic images is their numerous floating markets.  On our second day in Bangkok we took a trip out to visit one in person.  Sadly, like so many other places that tourists flock to see, it was obvious that locals did their shopping elsewhere to avoid the crowds.  Nevertheless the network of waterways wound through farms, narrow canals, past temples and through numerous stalls.  We purchased a few pieces of fresh fruit and enjoyed the refreshing breeze that the canals afforded before returning to the chaos and congestion that is Bangkok.
