Flashback May 11, 2004: My first photo blog post

Took this photo on my way to sign my work permit at the Thai Ministry of Education. Weeks later I saw the green croc again on the way to a Thai friend’s house and exclaimed “hey, I’ve been here before.” Patiently she explained that these sculptures are found wherever a road is under construction, sort of a “Your taxes at work, sorry for the inconvenience” apology to motorists.

If they used cute mascots like this as “under construction” signs here in Islamabad maybe motorists are less stressed by the detours, dust pollution, and summer heat.
