May Theme Day: City Exchange

This month's theme day is City Exchange. There was some confusion about whether you were supposed to post a picture of a city other than your own, or if you should post a photo of a city that would make the viewer think it was another city... so I went with the latter. This is a traditional 'sala', or pavillion, from Thailand which is right here on the east side of Madison. It was a gift from the King of Thailand to the University as a sort of thank you present for all of the students from Thailand who have studied here. I'll post a close up one day, it's truly remarkable, not a nail in the whole thing.
