,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, A Helping Hand ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,


Along a country road out here in rural Thailand my shooting partners motor bike came apart while cruzing down an old bumpy road.

Stranded with out tools to do our own repairs with the hot afternoon tropical sun beating down on us an unexpected surprise happened. A Thai farmer came up out of the bush to lend a helping hand. Problem was he had no tools either but soon other people were stopping by to see if they too could be of assistance in any way.

Lucky for us one of the men had a friend with a motorcycle shop about 5 klicks down the road. It was a garage full of old home made racing bikes and dusty trophies kind of shop, but good enough.In about an hour +or- we were back on the road again.

This is something one can still find in the out back here in rural Thailand, true kindness with a pleasant smile.
