appreciation and knowledge
[Photo ©2011, Chinatown, Yaowarat Road, Bangkok, Thailand]
I have scant knowledge of gold and it’s worth but I find the interest in it kind of funny. It is like anything else, it is of an imaginary worth. I find the flocks of people who show up in Yaowarat gold shops around Chinese New Year fascinating, the shops get packed especially the one shown here! That sudden interest helps push up the prices though it is the same gold that was there before all the enthusiasm. Need, want, hunger?
