Grand Palace grounds and crowds
As I leave the palace, a Thai policeman hands me a bottle of water, the Ministry of Justice is providing free drinking water and snacks at the palace.
Leaving the palace and walking along the outside of the palace grounds, I see more of great Bangkok canals and life on the canals.
The streets are full of markets, particularly fruit and vegetable.
Wat Rajabopitsathitmahasimaram (under renovation)
Wat Traimit Witthayaram Wora Wiharn
As I walk, I pass memorials to the former king and see that buildings and fences are draped in white and black of mourning.
