Alcoholic Haze´┐Ż

I left my hotel, went for a stroll in the Khao San Road area of Bangkok, Thailand. It was maybe about 7:00 in the morning, the time after the sun comes up and some people decide to stop drinking, and wander on home. This Thailand boy was way over the edge, or seemed to be, there is a certain intelligence or ability of a person that stands up his guitar and beer bottle.

I saw him later lying in a pile by some construction materials. Then, I went out again today, the next day and saw him again, lying in a heap.

He is very dirty, I personally do not like to talk with people that are on the other side of sanity, and that also means on the other side of clean. However, every night, behind the Wat on Khao San Road I observe many persons sitting on the streets with some of the most obnoxious and dirty Thailand people in existence. Every place and every country has the crazy, the over the edge, the people that really are going nowhere, however here on Khao San Road, they have a home.
