I'm starting to think that every part of every plant can bring good luck in Thailand, including these pods hanging from the taxi's rear view mirror. When I asked the driver about them, he pointed to some trees on the side of the road and told me they're easy to find. He went on to explain that they protect him from danger and they bring him more business. I used to think good luck charms had to be something rare, such as four leaf clovers, but apparently that's not the case here. Just hang some roots, leaves or pods in your car and you'll immediately feel lucky.
