Tonight we went to the “Hippie Night Market” on Kao San Road. It is a fascinating look at the backpacker culture from all over the world. There are many hostels lining the road, many bars, many young backpackers from mainly the west, and all kinds of food, clothes, fake IDs, jewelry, and souvenirs for sale.
My friend Stephanie, American but from the Philippines, had gotten her nose pierced here a few years ago, while at the conference. Her daughter Mona also has her nose pierced.
Not a month ago I had said to a friend, who said she’d like to get her nose pierced someday, “not me!”
So much for that… I’d love to show you a picture, but I’m not sure a close-up of my nose would be very attractive…
