The Story Behind The Cartoon

Published by el zorro in Offbeat
April 20th, 2011

This is just one of the many experiences that I have encountered during my visa runs. From Laos, Cambodia and within Thailand.

I have  limited amount of money during the time that I did my visa run. Actually I only have enough to ride a bus for me to be able to finally get home to where we are staying.

While waiting for our passports, I started goofing around at some of the slot machines on the hotel that we stayed for 2 days. Now, don’t get me wrong I don’t gamble and since my money was just enough for the bus I was literally saving it for me to be able to go home. My place is 2 hours away from the metropolis (whew).

Fortunately I have some coins on my pocket, so just as I said I started goofing around and played for a while.

and the rest can be read on my adventures on this site www.northernthailand.com.
