Oct 16 Thai Temple II
Bangkok - where else with a Thai Temple featured??? Well, was not so easy except for Elaine, Milt, and Joani. Mike was a few miles away but he tried. . .
"Thai Temple Steeple"
During its construction I bumped into the Raynham Fire Chief who was somewhat bewildered as he looked at the 180-foot tall spire. He was certain that he had nothing in his fire-fighting arsenal to cope with any emergencies at that height!
The sixty million dollar facility houses monks, two meditation rooms, a museum/library, and several multi-purpose rooms.
On this day I could not enter the Temple as it was closed. Since it is only a twenty-minute drive from my house, I planned to come back another day (and, I did).
Better get out the atlas as this year I will be featuring some of the more famous cities of the world! Here are some interesting facts about one of them. Just what city would I be visiting?

city in the world that has undergone an extraordinary transformation in recent
decades. For this reason 20% of the world’s total cranes are now operating here
in various constructions. the highest mosque, the highest restaurant, highest
outdoor observation and highest nightclub.

to the biggest mall, tallest hotel, second largest man-made marina, and the world’s
home to the
