The humidity here is really nice for my skin and hair. I rarely put lotion on here, and I think my skin looks at least 5 or 10 years younger with the moist air. It has also rained several times since I have been here, and as a desert dweller, I have enjoyed the rain. Then, there are the flowers.

One thing about the Thai people that is refreshing is that they rarely raise their voices. They speak softly and smile a lot. If I make an effort to use one of the five words I know in Thai, their faces light up. I read in a guide book that licking (as in eating food or licking your fingers) in public is taboo. So now when I see I Thai person with an ice cream cone, I watch carefully. So far, I have yet to see licking of any kind. (I have also learned how to eat an ice cream cone without licking.) You are also not to lick the stamps. An image of the King is on the stamps, and it is disrespectful to lick the King's image. To the Thai people, only animals lick things.
