Nice Runs Around Summit Golf Club in Bangkok

I could put in two nice morning runs around Summit Windmill Golf Club and surrounding residential areas in Bangkok last week.

The entrance of the golf club.

A local shrine.

Palm trees.

Bougainvillea.

A gated community.

This was the most funky building.

This house was for sale.

Still many houses were under construction.



It was not as hot as I feared in the mornings.

Mostly Inokashira Park and Mitaka Station

Yesterday morning, I had a great run in the morning in my neighborhood.  This may be the last time this season I may have such beautiful autumn colors.  So here are the photos:
