Yesterday about lunch time I took the family to Saraburi, some 100kms north of Bangkok. On the way I passed through the Rojana Industrial park where the Nikon factory is located in.
Wow! The water is gone! The place is now dry, and the clean up and rehabilitation operations are under way, the area still a bit of a mess though.

December the 4th
What a difference! Well done! There is no more flodding water. This time I didn’t have to use a boat to get there.
It is on the news that the Japanese company “Sanyo” (semi-conductors) already left the place for good as would be to costly to replace all the machinery.
Just bad planning or lack of any planning, this is a country known for its heavy rains during monsoon season and believe me that place is like a hole, would be great for a rice paddy field.
During the time the Industrial Park was flooded, I was able to drive my car around it but not to enter it due to the flood.
Look at these ATM machines.
…and on the corner of that white building.
I bought my Nikon D300 the first day they started selling it here in Thailand, now is more than four years old, it is starting to have some focusing issues, so I am looking for a new body, I am not so sure about a new D400 anymore as the rumoured D800 36MP, if the specs are correct can serve well wildlife photographers if using its DX mode and I will be moving to FX format if the rumoured D800 is that good.
Despite being Sunday the clean up work still under way.

Local residents going up and down some sort of stairs built on scaffolding to get access to the public transportation passing on the HIGHWAY (Taxi cars, Taxi bikes, buses) or even their own vehicles PARKED on the side lanes of the highway.
