Ajan Fred In Chiang Mai
A student was kind enough to take a picture of me at the classroom's shrine to the King. I was very interested in the use of "the ubiquitous blue PVC pipe" as a framing medium for the King's photo and the flag. This pipe is all over Thailand, used for a million purposes. I've seen it turned into a golf club; attached to a roof with metal tubing attached for use as a TV Aeriel; eighteen inches of a large gauge piece with the house address written on it used as a mailbox. It always makes me smile.
