Pain Diversion

Before I started taking taxis in Bangkok, the last place I had seen posters on the ceiling were at my dentist's office in the States. He liked to hang serene or sometimes funny images above his dentist chair to divert patients' attention from the procedure being performed on their teeth. Sometimes I wonder if Bangkok taxi drivers use this same technique of displaying pictures on their ceiling to distract passengers from the grueling traffic snarls of this city.
