On tuesday afternoon David and I went out to explore some abandoned houses that we've been seeing from the car every time we have been going in to Hua Hin. It was very hot and humid so we had brought lots of water with us.
I had to stop to take photos all the time and was always a few steps behind. These surroundings take my breath away!
And then we were there!
These house started to get built in 1997 but for some reason they weren't finished and since then they have just been standing there like skeletons of what could have been really pretty houses.

Can you see David by the way?
The vegetation has been taking over the entire area. It looked really amazing in the setting sun.
David had his camera monopod with him partly for the ability to take steady photos high up in the air but also to seek through the grass and bushes in front of us for snakes.
Let's go inside!
It was a lovely light moving through the otherwise kind of grim insides of the houses.
And the view from those windows!
Almost like paintings! With The Black Mountains in the distant.
I would love to have a real photoshoot there with models and everything. That would have been great, I think!
And on the other side of the houses: This. *sigh*
And to think that this would have been their back garden!? Imagine what it would be like to take your morning coffee with you out on the porch, or just sit down on a stump somewhere and breath it all in. Truly amazing.
David tries to grasp the beauty of it.
One of the things I can't resist taking photos of: Ruins and weird stone things covered in vegetation.
And grass/flowers in setting sun. It's like an addiction really; I just have to photograph it!
All of a sudden we had company! By this little fella. He followed us closely for a while but thankfully never touched us. A lot of the dogs around here have been vaccinated and helped by the local dog rescue but not all of them so you can't pet them no matter how adorable they may be.
They are building a gated community for finnish people here. I still really don't understand the point of building communities where only your own countrymen could live. I think it's sad actually.
Maybe there's advantages to this but all I can see is a distancing from other people and why do you wan't to live in another country if you only get too see the same boring people as you do at home? Is it only the warm weather you're after then? If there's something I'm missing here please let me know because this truly baffles me.
At this point we were very warm and tired but not very far from our house.
Just a quick stop at the little shop for something to eat. These shops have everthing you need and also works as restaurants.

After this we got home and I found five really large mosquito bites on my thigh. All of them att the same spot. Almost like they had a little party on my leg without me knowing about it. Isn't that rude!?
