    I wish I'd had a camera with me...

    One of those experiences today, when I wish I'd had my camera. Chiang Mai Immigration, sitting waiting for my turn to be called, and a lanky young falang shuffles in and takes a seat. Tatty clothes, holes in his knees and elbows, dreadlocks, and one of those sticky rice steaming baskets on his head by way of an improvised hat. Everyone near him started holding their noses. Everyone beyond wafting distance openly giggling. And he'd sat down right next to the sign that said "Please dress respectfully".

    The sleep of reason brings forth monsters.

    That was me, I'll start a thread about the unfair and prejudiced practices of C.M. immigration soon.

    It wasn't a "rice basket" I was wearing, just trimmed a woven farmers' hat down a bit.
    And the lovely sent was Patchouly oil which I use to make the dreadlocks stick.

    The link isn't a proper link to a picture (even though it does show a picture), you need it to end with a proper file extension to start with (.jpg, .gif, .png etc.), so the software removes the IMG tags and just shows the link.
