Met a Thai guy.
I have made it to Thailand, as many of you already know if you have been following my on Facebook and Youtube.
I have been working on settling in and getting into the swing of thing. Schedule and whatnot. My time in Thailand will be spent in classes that are meant to ensure the entire team is on the same page 'skill wise'. We all come from different backgrounds and skill levels, so this time will be interesting to say the least. But, I am looking forward to it. Each week we have several assignments and projects to cover.
I set out to find a subject today for one of my photo assignments and ended up finding it in the form of a Thai farmer/fisherman. Needless to say he was startled when he turned around to find a strange white guy with a camera snapping away. I followed him around while he checked previously placed fishing lines for fish and rebated the hooks. He didn't speak any english and I didn't speak any Thai but he managed to teach me how to catch catfish with live crickets.
Anyway, I just wanted to get these photos out. More to come.
