I'm in Thailand and things here are distinctly Asian. Both the airports in Korea and Bangkok had clean lines, lots of glass and modern architecture, and the characteristically Asian bag of crunchy fish. Also, on the plane I was served seaweed soup. Southeast Asia is a diet waiting to happen.
Today through Sunday, the Thai people celebrate their New Year. I'm here right in the thick of celebrations. What this means is that tiny asian boys spray water all over me and run after people with turbo water guns. Also, baby powder gets plastered on people's faces, cars, you name it. I was in a mall in a teenager poured water on my feet. I do not like Thai New Year.
