The bridge of the river Kwai, Thailand (November 2017)

Beijing, China Skyline

If you haven’t seen the movie “The bridge of the Kwai river” you can’t understand what this bridge, but especially this train track means….. Very emotional visit, especially after visiting the museum and the cemetery…

For those who don’t know the story, this bridge was destroyed by the US Air Force during WWII. This bridge was part of the “Death Railway” where over 100,000.00 prisoners’ died during its construction. They built this railway in the middle of the jungle with hand tools… This railway was from Burma to Thailand to supply the Japanese’s army. Today, only a very short portion of the original exists, and it is mainly for tourists cry
