Samblaos. Writers on Thailand write the name for a bicycle taxi (สามล้อไทย) as "samlor," but what my ears always heard was "samblao."

Chai, Frank. It was in Ubon in 1964. Upcountry the "R"s change to "L"s. "Farang", "foreigner" in Bangkok (originally French foreigner), comes out as "falang" in Ubon. Once when I used some of my limited upcountry Thai on a Bangkok taxi driver he said: "You speak hillbilly Thai."

In a world of her own. I shot this 55 years ago. I hope this beautiful kid survived the communist takeover ten years later.

That was no formal portrait, Eric. I stopped my jeep when I saw the kid playing, and shot it with my Canon 7 while sitting in the jeep. It was a split-second thing. I had to clean it up a bit in Camera Raw. Mea culpa, I cropped a bit. But it's really street.
