Gods and Spirits of Thong Lo: #2, Spirits of the Local Laundry.

Located at the darkened end of a narrow alleyway, the vibrant colors draped on this spirit house make it stand out from the shadows like a neon flame.

What is a spirit house? The picture is fascinating on it's own but I'm sure a description would only enhance the post.

I like your pictures. Like most Asian cities, Bangkok has such depths of ugliness and heights of beauty.

I used to live on Soi 49 in a strange kind of apt house, where my room was barely bigger than the double bed. The nice thing about it were the gigantic windows that looked out over the rooftops.
