On the way home from church today, I stopped to pick up some
groceries… and an iced coffee at a local coffee place. So my hands
were full when I got on the already packed song thaew. I was using my
only (somewhat) free hand to hold onto the bar above my head, so I’d
remain standing up and not fall out the back of the song thaew. It was
a little awkward but not too bad. A lady who was sitting on one of the
benches, basically just took my bags from me, so that I’d have an
easier time riding the song thaew. It kind of took me by surprise, but
in some ways it didn’t. I appreciate the hospitality and kindness that
I always find in S.E. Asia. I know that I will be learning a lot here.
I know I have been already.
