2011, Day 259 - Scaffolding

Moving from Bangkok to Chiang Mai today's photo depicts the restoration of a chedi.  A worker clambers through the bamboo scaffolding with a brush that he is using to fastidiously scrub the entire structure.  Chiang Mai is peppered with temples and their associated chedis, you can walk down the street and pick out their spire between and above trees and buildings.  At night some are illuminated and it is hard to resist their call; wandering narrow alleys and side streets past stray dogs and dimly lit doorways until you find the entrance to an obscure temple compound hidden away off the beaten tourist path.
