Fish for Sale

This picture was taken on a busy street in Bangkok, Thailand. Bangkok is a hectic, and at times, seemingly chaotic city. It has a weird balance with lots of peaceful spots hidden on crowded streets. I love Bangkok because it has a lively energy, unlike anywhere else i’ve ever been. One of the really cool things about Bangkok, and Thailand in general, is the food. Thailand has fantastic food, and a high availability of street food, which is cheap, and usually pretty good (as long as you’re careful street food shouldn’t be a problem, just don’t eat anything you wouldn’t eat when you’re at home). I’m not a fish person, but I loved the way this picture came out. This is just one in a series of pictures I took of food vendors on the streets in Bangkok, more to come soon!

Tree of Life

This picture was taken in one of the many fantastic pagodas in Bagan, Myanmar. Behind the Buddha Statue is a painting of a tree of life, this tree is prominent in the imagery in this area of Myanmar, and can be found in many of the Pagodas. Bagan has a ton of cool Pagodas to offer, with a lot of really amazing art and architecture. If you are visiting Myanmar I would highly recommend making a trip to Bagan. If you’ve read any of my other posts about Myanmar you will already know this, but if you haven’t I think it’s important to mention; there IS an appropriate dress code here! Myanmar tends to be a little conservative in general, and whether you choose to respect that or not while in town is up to you. My family all did, we kept our legs covered at least to below the knees, and our shoulders covered. When you are in temples MAKE SURE you are dressed appropriately, cover your legs and shoulders, and make sure you remove your shoes and socks!

Mummy Lady

This lovely lady is a 3,000 year old egyptian mummy on display at the Rosicrucian Egyptian Museum in San Jose, California. This mummy is female, she was a priestess, and she was about 28 years old when she died, though cause of death is unknown. The Museum is built in an Egyptian style, and houses the largest collection of Egyptian Artifacts on the West coast of North America. This is one of four human mummies in their collection, which also includes a large number of animal mummies. The Museum is opened Wednesday through Sunday from 9am-5pm. It’s definitely an interesting museum, and worth a visit if you are in the area.
