True Colors

Thais love color. They're especially keen on bright colors combined with other vibrant colors to create a rainbow effect. It makes sense when you consider that this country has a tropical climate. And maybe this love of color has something to do with the cultural influences from India. It's also true that Thai people are attracted to anything that says "fun and happy" and these brilliant colors definitely fall under those categories. It's unfortunate, however, that the taxi driver in this cab wasn't as cheerful as his colorful taxi accoutrements. In fact, I would say he was downright miserable.
