Parked Cars (Wednesday Photo)

Cars in a Thai Parking Lot

I like this photo because it reminds me of Thailand parking lots and traffic. In both parking and driving, Thai people are able to fit their cars into spaces that you would swear were just too small.

To the left are cars parked at 90 degrees to the front of the condominium units; these are assigned spaces to residents. The other cars, starting with the blue cab in front, are parked in front of the other cars; the drivers lock the car but they leave the car in neutral so it can be moved back and forth and the 90 degree parked cars can get in and out. You see this in parking lots everywhere; parking space is at a premium.

The Wednesday Photo is a new picture each week highlighting something of interest in Thailand. Click on the picture to see a larger version.
