A wai is the Thai form of greeting, hands pressed together in a prayer position. It is a sign of respect. Teachers garner a lot of respect in Thailand and these girls obviously knew that. I was really impressed. I thought: I love Thailand.
I walked a few more paces and then stopped and turned around. I had a nagging feeling that I had gotten a little too excited about my place in Thai society.
I was right.
This guy was behind me.
I am an asshole.
