Bangkok’s skyline is changing dramatically.  More and more peaks and spikes are appearing around town.  But sometimes there are hidden gems.

This is Captain Bush’s house – an historical figure and contemporary of Anna Leonowens of the “King and I”.  Actually, they were neighbors but Anna’s house has been demolished. However, after many years, Captain Bush’s house is fully restored and renovated, perhaps it will become a museum.
