|Snoozing between fares in Isaan|
The "Sleeping" series still generates enough interest that it'll continue, I suppose. It's certainly not for a lack of people seen snoozing while I'm out and about, that's for sure; it's perfectly normal in a warm climate and even somewhat of a prerequisite in a hot one.

|You'll have to look closely to see this woman napping above the Chao Phraya River near Nonthaburi, but she's there.|
I'd love to be able to say I'm going to get a nap in today myself, but it's not going to happen. May you have better luck with it than I do!
