You might have heard that Thailand is known as the ‘Land of Smiles’ for the friendliness of the people. When I was in Krabi, I overheard tourists mentioning how great the service was here and how happy Thais were to help. This was one of the many times I’ve chuckled about the lack of knowledge about Thai culture and in this instance, what I want to point out is, Thai people aren’t always happy when they smile. Luckily, Volunteers have learned to interpret the subtle differences and often get some of the best ones in the world. There’s nothing quite like it.
I couldn’t help myself, I needed to add more than one. These smiles are the type that make my little PCV world go round.
Last, but most certainly not least…
