Where I stayed
saw an interesting thing last night. just a brief interaction that made me laugh and then ponder. there was a man on khao san road who was obviously a backpacker....meaning early to mid 20's and no the "budget travel" package.......who must have had at least 50 piercings in his face. I'm talking lips, bridge of the nose, eye brows, cheeks, chin, the whole fucking thing. he had about 20lbs of metal hanging from his mutilated head. all of this is nothing new and i have seen it a hundred times and to each their own. who am i to judge people.......i mean really, me?
the funny thing was that as he was walking up the street with his friend he obviously became quite smitten with a very beautiful Thai girl who was walking in the other direction. he approaches her to chat her up a bit and she recoils in horror and then skimmpers away. mutilated face guy was visibly angry and/or confused over the whole thing. my statement is this....everyone has the right to do whatever it is to their own bodies but how this guy could not recognize how he had ostracized himself from the mainstream population baffled me. you pretty much give up the right to any meaningful social interaction with ANYONE other then small group of people in the world who hold the same fascination you have with puncturing your body. if you wanted to strike up a conversation with a hot Thai girl maybe you should not have become a pin cushion.
i don't really have all that much to say other then that i guess. i hope u all have a great year ahead of you and stay safe as we make our way through this crazy world in which we live. stay black and strong!!!
