The woman held the handgrip tightly

I got on the water-bus from Pratunam Pier. It was the only water-bus which still run in Bangkok. The canal which this water-bus ran was detached from the traffic jam. It moved smoothly while it raised a spray of water. Sitting silently, a conductor came to me and I paid the fee. He walked around the swinging water-bus to collect the fee. Because it was the first time to get on the water-bus, I enjoyed the situation.

A woman sat in front of me. And I found she held a handgrip tightly. A string was connected between the handgrip was the plastic curtain. When she pulled the handgrip, the curtain was raised. So the reason she held the handgrip was not to withstand the swinging. It was to avoid the spray of water.

In the meantime, the water-bus arrived at the destination before long. It was very handy to come and go between the Grand Palace area and the city center.
