    Taxi Taxi!

    In the case of Bangkok taxis, it is common to see duplicate decorations on dashboards and in the back of cabs. I'm wondering if these cloned characters and twin talismans are supposed to bring double the luck, or did the cabbies simply pick them up at "Buy one, Get one" sales.

  • 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...

    Roar of the Tiger

    In Thai culture, those who possess the symbol of the tiger generally want to obtain some of the attributes of this creature, including strength and fearlessness. I mages of tigers are commonly seen in Thailand in the form of sak yant tattoos and on magical yan cloths, but in this case...
