Big boned

  • I spotted this little fat figurine while wandering around a flea market just outside of Chiang Mai. It wasn’t on sale but was in fact stood in pride of place on the counter of the Chang Sawasdee cafe.

    Made out of a converted old VW Kombi, (camper van) the Chang Sawasdee was painted an unmissable bright orange and was surrounded by multi-colored wooden stools under large parasols. The coffee itself was pretty good and went some way to satisfying the taste I developed for good coffee while I lived in Melbourne.
