Clement went to Bangkok for holiday on 3-8 August, 2008. It was his first visit to Bangkok, and he enjoyed very much the holiday. Of course, it was a very good thought of him for sending me this postcard from Thailand. The postcard shows Wat Phra Keo, the temple of Emerald Buddha, in Bangkok. The temple was built in 1782, and is regarded as the most sacred Buddhist temple in Thailand.
