Come To Me

Once I heard of Puek Tian beach, a place with a statue in the sea, I just knew I had to see it. It’s a 15-20km drive from Cha Am to reach it. Here you can see many impressive sculptures of fictional characters invented by Thailand’s most famous poet, Sunthorn Phoo. This is a scene from one of his stories where the giant wife is asking her husband, the prince on the left, to come back to her, after the prince had left her for a mermaid. Quite a storyline! I’m pleased how these photographs turned out, I like the surreal look of them. I wish I had longer to take pictures there as it started to rain almost instantly after arriving there.

    Melkoisen matamin näköinen! 😀 Lukiko toi tarina jossain vai kertoiko joku sen sulle? 🙂

    • No on kyllä! 😀 Utelin Auilta ton tarinan juonenkäänteet. Vissiin joku pitkä tarina kyseessä minkä jokainen thaimaalainen joutuu koulussa opettelemaan tietyn ikäisenä. Tarinassa oli muitakin juttuja mitä en tarkalleen muistanut niin kerroin tollaisen super-typistetyn version siitä. 🙂
