I drove in Phuket today.
It was like being in a computer game. Your mission: ensure a cheery disposition at all times by singing to music illegally downloaded from YouTube in the 2000s, and NEVER honk your horn while avoiding the following:
white bearded topless men on scooters wobbly weaving in and out of traffic pretending they’re modern day Vikings
the locals on scooters carrying babies and 7 weeks worth of shopping
the pick up trucks who suddenly swerve to avoid the above
random soi dogs fancying their chances biting scooter wheels and ankles
random very old people fancying their chances slowly running across the motorway
everyone & their cat parking in, and opening their doors on the inside lane of the motorway
construction workers resetting the roads with hot tarmac with a cigarette hanging out of their gobs & no hardhats
chickens. lots of chickens
getting distracted by the glamorous massage parlor girls…
Oh and red lights don’t actually mean stop and driving up the wrong side of the road into oncoming traffic is perfectly acceptable.
I liked it
