PHOTOS – Southeast Asia Part 2


Here’s the second installment of photos from my travels. This one includes more from my Thailand teaching and travels, and then some of snorkeling and camping on a Malaysian island.

Taken in La Oop, Mae Sariang, and Chiang Mai, Thailand, and Salang, Malaysia

Photos are labeled with numbers below. To read why I must do it this way, please see Photos – Southeast Asia Part 1.

(1) I just rode my bike in back of a Thai temple in Chiang Mai and found this. The monk on the left knew some English, and I knew some Thai, so we ended up talking for half an hour.

(2) This is supposed to look scary, but actually it’s the fun after-school boy scouts/girl scouts program where they do relay races and fun stuff on the playground. But yeah, the government-issue uniforms are scary.

(3) Amazing leaf bug.

(4) I crocheted this hat for my littlest sister. The orange color was the only yarn sold for miles and miles, so don’t blame me.

(5) This is a dragonfly with the thinnest black wings folded above its body. Alien-like, oui?

(6) He used to love NY, too.

(7) I’m in a tree, I’m in a tree, take a good hard look at the MOTHER-

(8) A man working on a fishing boat. Note the cigarette in one hand and cell phone in the other despite the poor working conditions.

(9) The view from where we camped for free. Dang.

(10) Me and Hamid.

(11) Oh come on, they’re cute! In a creepy kind of way.

(12) Just a cool li’l lizard, but not as cool as the next one, which is…

(13) …a WILD Komodo Dragon!

(14) A local Malay woman fishing in the morning.

(15) My little sister in the village.

(16) What I had to eat every day with rice. It’s about as good as it looks.

(17) Me and Sanit.

(18) You had to be there.

(19) This is how you get drinks to go. A cup? Try a bag. Thanks.

(20) An abandoned farm shed in Thailand.
