visual journal: thailand cities

did you know that thailand has a color assigned to each day of the week? depending on what day you're born, that is your color. the king's is yellow. ask me how dazzled i was by that fact. remember this?

anyway, our tour guide told us that we were seeing a lot of pink taxis instead of yellow because there is a political activist group that wears yellow shirts and the thai people do not want any negative connotations associated with the king so his new color is pink.

or something like that.
