After a whole day taping sounds in Ayutthaya, finally I headed back to Bangkok by the night train. After I arrived in Hua Lamphong station in Bangkok, I felt like I didn’t want to go back to the lodge in the area of Samut Prakan. I then spent the night studying and recording the soundscape in the station which was opened since 1916. The station was built under the command of King Rama V Chulalongkorn who was captivated by the beauty of Frankfurt train station back when he visited Germany in 1907.

After i was done having fun taping in the station building, i headed out of there. It was already past 10 pm. I was stunned when I saw so many homeless people sleeping on the corner of the building, just near the station entrance door. There was a lot of people, and more to come as the night gets late. This is the recording of a conversation between homeless mens that night in 15th January 2019. These are the sounds of real life, along with its struggles. Before that, I went pass through a homeless person that was being kicked out in a polite manner by a security while the homeless tried to lay there on the building’s floor, inside this historical station.
