...or this one.
(For the record, both of those were from Eureka, California in 1993 when I was a missionary, if that wasn't already obvious.)
Thailand has it's own share of amazing, fabulous signs. I don't have a camera with me as often as I would like so that I can capture these amazing signs, but this last week I got a couple.
For example, did you know that the New England Patriots are huge fans of the Thai postal system? Yup, it's true, as evidenced by this:
Do you see the common symbol on the bike baskets? Just in case you don't see it, here it is magnified a little bit:
This last one appears at the rest stops along the highways in Thailand's northeastern region, right next to the ubiquitous 7-Elevens. All of the toilets at the rest stops are squatters--all, that is, but the one designated by this sign (faithful readers will note that this makes two consecutive blog posts referencing squat toilets--I'll make no promises that it will not become an enduring theme):
I mentioned to the two Thais with whom I was traveling that the sign actually was missing a fourth component. Starting at the top and going counterclockwise, the sit-toilets are for the elderly, pregnant women, and the disabled, but needs to also include farangs (Westerners). The problem is, exactly how do you display a farang in graphic form?
