Who Says The Royal Thai Soldiers Are No Fun?
You don't get this when you go to the Hard Rock Cafe.
In the small southeastern Thai town of Trat I did what I always do. I found a room, locked up my bike, showered and headed out to grab some dinner somewhere the locals congregate.
I didn't seek these guys out. They came and sat at my table. They chatted me up - in Thai, I guess. They ordered food. We ate. Then the guy in the white/tan camo gave me his gun.
Notice that the magazine is locked in place. Notice also where he has his hand very firmly in place.
These guys were cool, but they weren't stupid.
