Juxtaposition

Eating in the Mercy canteen in the middle of the slaughterhouse slums, I casually glance out the window and notice a huge cruise ship docked in the port. I can only imagine that the 3,000 or so passengers will be herded onto land, run through a Wat or two, and hustled back on the ship. When they return home, they will tell their friends they “saw” Bangkok.

Sitting in the Mercy Canteen, I spot a huge cruise ship in the port.  Weird.
