Is it a bird?


Is it a flying buffalo?


Nope, it is a kite on the lose.


With half the kids in the village in hot pursuit it will soon be found.


For those interested in the tile progress the tiler turned up today on Thai time (about 11am and then went for lunch at 12!) He worked steadily all afternoon though.


So by quitting time this afternoon this is how it looks.

  1. looks great! love the marble top very classy

  2. Is your tiler worried about inhaling dust or keeping his identity secret?! I didn’t think that that was the type of headgear generally worn in Thailand. Didn’t see any of it when I was there in October anyway.

Thai people have a fear of ‘turning black’ and will do anything they can to make their skin as white as possible. If you have dark skin you will be instantly labelled with being a peasant farmer (which I guess is what they are but doesn’t stop them from trying not to look like one!)

    90% of people around here would wear very similar clothes whenever they worked out in the rice fields but not usually inside.”
