This is one of those little unusual moments I wanted to capture when we were having breakfast at a place called The Coffee House just around the corner from where we were staying in Rawai, Phuket. A couple of farangs on a motorcycle and side-car pulled in, both wearing helmets, unusually so for Thailand, accompanied by a small well maintained dog – also wearing a helmet! I missed the opportunity to get the fluffy actually wearing the safety equipment but you’ll get the idea from the photos below.
The ironic side of this is that I see parents with small children on motorbikes in 99% of cases either no one is wearing a helmet or just the rider. The law here only requires the person riding to wear a helmet, the other three people on the bike don’t have to.
Thanks for reading.
