Still Life in Moving Vehicles

3 days ago ... I just returned from a fun trip to Yangon, Myanmar. It turns out that taxis are a good way to get around there. They're plentiful and many of the ...

  • No Nagging ? #Bangkok #กรุงเทพ #Thailand

    No Crazies

    Stickers prohibiting passengers from smoking, drinking, eating, and a host of other activities are commonly found on the windows of Bangkok taxis. But I've never seen one quite like this before. I'm still not exactly sure what it is trying to communicate. Apparently, enraged people wi...

    Thai Pillow Talk

    as they are known in Thai, have been around for centuries in this culture. Some Thais still use them in their houses, and you can find them all over Thailand in local restaurants, hotel lobbies with traditional furnishings, and even in some Bangkok taxis. They come in a variety of siz...

    Taxi Mitts

    While taxi drivers in Tokyo sport white gloves, some of the cabbies in our fair city opt for more flamboyant accessories. Take for example, the driver of this cab who is wearing striped purple gloves. Maybe it's just me, but this looks seems completely out of place in a tropical envir...

    Cat and Mouse

    Physical comedy translates well into many cultures, including in Thailand. In fact, slapstick comedy is extremely popular here, so it makes sense that Thais would appreciate the antics of the classic Warner Brothers characters, Tom and Jerry. The other day, my cabbie had a figurine wi...

  • Blowing the Whistle

    There are many people in Bangkok who want to "blow the whistle" on the current government and put a stop to their antics, but it's rare to see Bangkok taxi drivers who do not support this Prime Minister. I asked the cabby about his political views and he told me that he isn't in favor...

    No Photos

    One question I often get when people see my taxi photos is, "Do the drivers mind when you take pictures in their cabs?". I assure them that I always ask the cabbies if it's okay and I often tell the drivers about this blog or my book, Thai Taxi Talismans . Most of the time the cabbies...
