Kwai River. Kanchanaburi, Thailand. An easy drive from Bangkok, this was my favorite place to go to get out of the city. Impossible not to whistle the song from the movie, though.

Monk and monkies.  Somewhere in Thailand. I am almost 100% sure it was Ayutthaya. Those monkies are aggressive. They will jump on you, take your stuff. The monks are not aggressive. But touching a woman is impure, so you have to be careful around them. It’s almost as annoying as the monkies.

Taxis. London. February 2009. London Taxis are, for the most part, all they are cracked up to be. Though mostly I used the tube and minicabs.
