In December, my Philippine based Austrian friend Stefan Lowenstein and his girlfriend Nikko, came to Bangkok for work then leisure. He took me around instead, jajajajaa. I just did a little bit of Thai-speak from time to time...as Stefan said a "semi-translator" There were 6 of us so we hired our own boat that took us to these places. Baan Silapin means 'artists' house', Wat Arun is also known as the Temple of Dawn. They are all very inspirational places indeed! The colors of the temples, tiny pieces of ceramic painstakingly pasted on every nook and cranny!
