Thai Hermit

No, that's not some kind of sneaky elf or Kris Kringle with a sack full of gifts on the yellow incantation cloth, I think that's a Thai hermit yogi.  In the past, these hermits were spiritual guides known for their knowledge of ancient medicinal practices.  I've heard there are still some of these hermits living in the northwoods of Thailand.  And I've even seen some creepy foreigners in Bangkok who look like that guy.
