Three Kinds of Foreigners

I'm in Chiang Mai, Thailand this week, attending a conference.  Unlike Bangkok, it's big sister in the south, Chiang Mai is a laid back town with tons to keep tourists entertained: elephant rides, jungle trekking, butterfly farms, foot massages, shopping, and great eateries.

Being a compulsive people-watcher, I enjoy watching the tourists who breeze through here.  Based on my observations it seems to me that every foreigner in town this week falls into one of three categories:  young hippy-trekkies, oversized European tourists, and English teachers from China.

By their clothes ye shall know them!!!
