Welcome to Thailand: The Land of Smiles

During my first weeks here in this beautiful country I have become aware of something subtle yet significant… Speaking Thai is much easier to do while smiling. Now I’m not a linguist or anything, but I’ve noticed that many of the sounds made in speaking need to have the corners of the mouth pulled back and exposing the teeth…

While that may sound a bit like the face of a rabid dog, when done gently it is simply a smile    🙂
