Leaving the village, I headed for the Chao Phraya river to go back to my hotel. I started to walk in a similar way when I came here. I proceeded through the residential area. The low-rise dwellings stood on the both sides of the lane. No automobiles ran. Alternatively, I went by an oncoming motorcycle from moment to moment.

During rambling along, I found a small statue standing by the wayside. It wore a red turban on its head. I thought of a turban as Sikhs. Yet where I walked was not India. It pressed its hand together in front of its chest while glancing up. It did a Thai greeting. The gesture is called wai. So it had a respectful attitude to a foreign stranger.

By the way, Ronald McDonald stood in front of McDonald did the same gesture in Thailand.
