This is why we’re friends, part 4

September 25, 2010

Firstly, let me say that Thai bus companies completely missed that the point of overnight bus rides is to sleep on the bus. Not only are there frequent stops where they turn on all the lights and pick up people from the side of the road, but whenever we pass through a police checkpoint, they turn on this really peppy samba music with the most pop-candy sounding Thai women singing. Maybe it’s a strategy to inspire the police with love so they don’t target the darkest skinned people and pull the ones off the buses that they think have fake papers – if so, nice thought, but it doesn’t seem to be working :/ I always try to make a point of forcing my passport in the face of the police and making them check mine too, but they could care less. So as of late I just spend my time trying to figure out if their tight polyester uniforms are indeed one piece as they’re rumored to be, because that would be phenomenal. Final judgment is still pending.
