bangkok

The capital of Thailand, Bangkok is known locally as Krung Thep Maha Nakhon for short (there are actually 42 syllables in total, for those with large lungs).

Sometimes called "the Venice of the East" for its canals – it is built around the majestic Chao Phraya River. But today it has many modern buildings, horrific traffic, and a population estimated at up to 15 million.

Bloggers may be writing about of about the realities of life there, about holidaying there, about movies set in the city. Or they may be living there.

Music Review: Galapaghost – ‘Pulse’ Presents Innovative, Luxurious Indie Rock

Wow! 'Pulse' is surprisingly good. The melodies are lustrous and expansive, while the rhythms ache with splendid muted buffeting. Chandler’s voice is easy to listen to and rife with velvety sonority. I enjoyed 'Pulse' and recommend it to you.
