Bridge over the River Kwai, Kanchanaburi, Thailand

Bit of a tropical rain shower this morning to start the day off; as i was on a bus heading toward Kanchanaburi - the site of the infamous Bridge over the River Kwai where hundreds of thousands of Prisoners of War during WWII slaved over the construction of the Thailand-Myanmar Railway, many of which sacrificed their lives.  Fascinating to see the bridge with such a history behind it.
