523rd place (joint)
One minute ago, tropical sun laughed at my red neck; one minute after, leaden-grey clouds drove the sun to nowhere and raindrops started sweeping through the air. I searched for the perfect angle while running for a cover. And I took this photo. Make no mistake, this is not Italy. This Ananta Samakhom Throne Hall actually stands in Dusit Palace Park in Bangkok. The king Rama V wanted an European style reception hall built with European material, probably to remind his young time spent in Europe.
