The Temple of the Emerald Buddha. I had the opportunity to visit Bangkok by chance as I missed my connecting flight from Frnakfurt to Bangalore and so was rerouted via Bangkok.

Grafton Street Dublin - Molly Malone

Molly Malone, or Cockles and Mussels, is the unofficial anthem of Dublin City in Ireland. It is sung by supporters of Dublin GAA teams and Irish international rugby team. The song tells the tale of a beautiful fishmonger who plies her trade on the streets of Dublin, but who tragically dies young of a fever.

Statue of Molly on Grafton StreetMolly is commemorated in a statue designed by Jean Rynhart, placed at the bottom of Grafton Street in Dublin, erected to celebrate the city's first millennium in 1987; this statue is known colloquially as "The Tart with the Cart".
