First picture: the King of Thailand does not wear shorts, so tourists are not allowed to wear them either while visiting the Royal Palace. Rent for a few hours a pair of funny colored trousers for 1.70USD. Also available: long skirt for women.
Second picture: Laura wearing a borrowed (but mandatory) Islamic veil during a visit at the Embassy of Iran in Bangkok.
Third picture: at the tailor, ordering my first ever suit. Now I can apply for a job at the bank!
