Palace of Rama V and Rama VI

We visited the summer palace of Ramas V and VI which is used today only for special functions. It's very close to the university and we saw a number of students jogging through the beautifully landscaped grounds.

Here we are paying homage to Rama V. There's a volunteer who looks after the statue and provides incence sticks for a small fee. We each get 9 incense sticks to burn.
There's a whole ceremony which he conducts in Thai, and we repeat after him.

And finally, I just love when Hans takes pictures of signs like this!
