Forensic Medicine Museum, Siriraj Hospital, Bangkok (Thailand)

The museum, located in the largest hospital of Bangkok, has several sections.­ This is one of the most fascinating, as it displays a number of preserved fetuses and human body parts of people who got murdered or died in accidents.­

Those photos were shot in Thailand in May 2008 (Bangkok) and in March-April 2005, where I traveled with my friend Anke Rega.

Our 25-day tour in 2005 included, in chronological order, Bangkok, Ayutthaya, Kanchanabury, Nam Tok, Erawan, Nam Tok Huai Mae Khamin, Thong Pha Phum, Sangkhla Buri, Wat Wang Wiwekaram, Ban Pa Rai Nok, Nakhon Ratchasima, Phanom Rung, Si Racha, Chantaburi, Ko Chang, Phimai, Nong Khai, Ban Phu, Wang Saphung, Loei, Dan Sai, Phitsanulok, Sukhothai, Si Ratchanalai, Chiang Mai, Tham Chiang Dao, Chiang Rai, Tha Ton, the Wieng Haeng loop, Pai, Muang Paeng, Tham Lot, and many other fantastic places that are not on the maps.­

We were lucky to be in the Phanom Rung historical park during the annual festival, during which the history and legends associated with this religious monument are re-enacted by hundreds of actors, dancers and musicians in a very impressive celebration.­

We also had the chance to be in Chiang Mai during Songkran, the Thai New Year (April 13th through the following week-end).­ During this holidays period, a Thai tradition consists in throwing copious amounts of water to others as a way to wish a happy new year.­ Chiang Mai's old defensive moat provide a endless source of water for the occasion.­
