The Big Turtle

This very strange project has been in progress for about 2 years...beside the highway about 13km from our house.

 

I have to admit that I shake my head and mumble "What the heck!" every time I pass by the site.

It wouldn't be Thailand with out those "What the heck?" moments....
Ray: This is true, Rob! smile
Wonder what it will end up as? I like the turtle!!
Ray: I am guessing it will become a sales outlet for locally produced goods, Elizabeth, but will have to wait and see.
La tortue a une tête bien sympathique.
Ray: Il ne faut pas faire peur aux jeunes enfants, Martine.
"About two years" sounds perfect for the turtle, I bet, Ray. Hmmmm. Does make you wonder.
Ray: Yes, Ginnie...about the right pace! smile

How bizarre is this! Maybe somebody has too much imagination and money..
Ray: I am interested to see how it all turns out, Chris.

I thinks though the project started but then the developers maybe ran out of money. Or maybe they discovered that the site is home t the rare Concrete Turtle and can't do any more work until the turtles have moved on elsewhere.
Ray: Or...perhaps it is intended to be Thailand's premier Cake shot, Alan, and they have slowed down to concentrated on sourcing the product! smile

"The Turtle Dome", Ray. I bet they have here the World Championship Turtle races in 2020......
Ray: That is something to look forward to, Astrid! smile
i wonder what the project manager had to say when he saw this progress in a couple of years, Ray. but i like the truss based dome structure.
Ray: They seem to be using a lot more steel than originally planned, Ayush...perhaps someone ran an enginerring more... smile

Some flowers should be planted inside the Big Turtle. What a modern area in Thailand!
Ray: It is strainge, Philine...even for Thailand!
I hope we will see follow up pics as the site develops Ray.
Ray: That is my plan, Bill...it is moving slowly, so the next update might not be any time soon.

Although, I am thinking of visiting the site with a big camera...
Bonjour Ray
La tortue comme appel vers cette structure ne nous dit pas vraiment ce qui se construit ...
Bonne journée
Ray: Je suis d'accord ... il n'y a pas beaucoup d'indices à ce stade du projet, Claudine.

I am at a loss Ray, but I like your photograph.
Ray: I will keep you posted as clues become clear, Chad.
How interesting. As somebody who spent most of their working life in the aggregates industry I find the old truckmixer interetsing, it has no proper cab.
Ray: That is a homebuilt vehicle, Brian...quite a common vehicle in Thailand.
The small turtle being there says it all, Ray.
Ray: I think the small turtle is their Building Plan, Mary.

Could be the feeding dinosaurs with that big bowl. About the rest - what the heck indeed.
Ray: Thailand is a unique and wonderful place, Louis.
A turtle theme park? smile
Ray: Could be that, Tom...in which case it will have something to do with education/knowledge...I await clues... smile
