Thailand – ‘the Land of Smiles’

1

I literally see dozens of smiles like in the photo, each and every day.

They aren’t all as lovely as this hotel (Shangri-La) employee, but they all seem to resonate from deep in their Thai soul; be they from a monk on his early morning walk to collect his daily alms, or from the old lady at the market selling lottery tickets, or from the school kids piling into the back of the bus.

Some Thai people seem not to know how falangs (foreigners) will react to their smiles.

I have found, if I without hesitation, return their smile; the ‘bounce back smile’ will not only ‘light up the room’, but will ‘light up my heart’.

personal thought:

‘The Land of Smiles’ is NOT a cliche!
