Home Away

As a majority of taxi drivers in Bangkok come to work here from other parts of Thailand, there are many cabbies in this city who are kittung bahn, or literally in English, missing home. A lot of these drivers only have the chance to travel back to their province a couple of times per year to visit their family. As a result, it's common to see pictures of mom and pop in Bangkok cabs. And every once in a while, you'll even find photos in taxis of drivers' pet buffalos back home.
