Farang at last

There are slang terms in many countries of the world for "those not like us," or "white foreigners." They are generally not meant badly (although occasionally it's very bad). In Japan, I would be "Gaijin." In China, "Gweilo." Here in Bangkok, along with the hordes of non-Thais on Khaosan Road, I claim the title of "Farang."

The above image was shot in Chicago O'Hare airport. I was struck by the colour and the lines.

Now I'm off to see Wats (temples) so I can post pretty pictures of Bangkok here.
