Wat Phra Kaeo

This royal chapel, situated in the country's capital (Bangkok), houses the most sacred temple in Thailand, the Temple of Emerald Buddha.

There are a number of structures that surround this area that are of extraordinary beauty.

Emerald Buddha.

A large part of the temple walls are painted with the history of the country. The detail of the paintings are incredible.

We had the opportunity to attend the rehabilitation of these paintings and realize the work they did.

It is the only chapel where Thai monks do not live, but they are out there :)

During the trip on Lago di Como we could stop in many places, but we only choose one...Bellagio :)
Lots of people said it was the best place to stop, the most beautiful. I think they were telling the truth :)
Approaching the port.

Lago di Como

The fourth stop in the North of Italy was Como to visit the third largest lake in Italy.
The adventure began by looking at the boat for the trip. A pleasant old model. The Concordia.
The images speak for themselves.
A happy traveler :)

After leaving Venice the next stop was Verona, the city of Romeo and Juliet.
Symbolism of romance, visitors leave their registration :)
(photo of one of the walls of the house of Juliet)
The famous balcony.
Another symbolism, this time of good luck.
Arena, the roman amphitheater.
Square Erbe.
Duomo, not as big as in Milan.
Castle of San Pedro.
Garibaldi bridge.
Pietra bridge.
Adige River.
The city is beautiful, very picturesque, as we strolled through the streets seems that we are part of a novel by Shakespeare.
If you go to Italy, don't miss this city :)
