"The Mango Tree Cafe, Loi Kroh Road," I had no idea what to expect from the story. I had never visited nor read anything about Thailand. I had knew of Bangkok, Thailand but didn't really know what the countryside looked like or how people lived their lives in that part of the world.
primitive life, loneliness, tourism, overcrowded isolation, street dogs, natives dressed in coolie hats, and brooding angst. It's a world so unlike our current society, yet it somehow feels disturbingly familiar.
Loi Kroh Road which casts a spell of certain uncertainty. It is all of these reasons and more that I love this story so much. You will too.
