The blacksmith heated in the fire pit in Baan Bu

Getting out of the deserted precinct of Wat Suwannaram Ratchaworawihan, I started to walk along the canal. The bank of the canal was occupied by the dwellings. And narrow lanes ran between the buildings. The atmosphere was balmy and I could see the locals sometimes.

Strangely enough, the locals said that I should go to a place when I focused on them. At first, I couldn't understand where I should go. Yet I knew what the locals wanted to tell me in no distant future. There was a small metal factory in this area called Baan Bu. So the locals told me the place of the factory.

Entering the factory, some craftsmen worked around the fire pit without saying a word. One of the craftsmen just heated the metal in the fire pit. It looked like working in a sauna.
