The week in photos – Twenty Eight

Greetings from Thailand!

Welcome to another week in photos. After sixteen incredible days in Iran, I’m now relaxing in Bangkok. I’ve been here for a few days now and I decided to leave the camera in the bag which is probably the longest I’ve gone without using it and it’s felt great and seeing Bangkok through a different set of lenses.

I was due to fly out back into Hanoi today but I’ve decided to stay for another week in Thailand. I’ll be heading to Chiang Mai on Saturday to hang out with some friends who have relocated there and then fly back to Hanoi from there. I have to admit, I’m in a happy place right now; eating thai food and drinking cold beer and eating pork after a break from my two favourite food groups.

This week’s photos are a collection from the past two weeks in Iran as the internet connections were too sketchy and I didn’t upload any last week. As usual, let me know which ones are your favourites.

  1. Hey Jimmy, great photography! Also, I am so jealous you went camel riding.

    Thai food is one of my most favorite types of food (which they are lacking some good restaurants for here in Berlin), so do me a favor and eat enough for both of us :)

    Cheers!
