This used to be my commute to work.

Since I have moved to Phuket I have a new found appreciation for what was an idyllic route to and from school, meandering through rubber plantations and farmland with only the odd herd of buffalo in the way of traffic.

Fast forward to Phuket; big roads.  Big, busy roads.  Roadworks.  Roadworks everywhere.  Unecessary u-turns resulting in a zig-zag traverse across the island. Traffic jams.  Floods.  Crazy drivers.  Insane drivers. 

That commute there in that photo?  That’s one thing I miss about living in the deep south.
