This man was on the boat with us leaving Koh Samed Island in Thailand. On the Island, the Westerner’s significantly outnumbered the locals. The ink on his arm adds a nice touch to the jewelry and streaks of white in his beard. I love the deep lines etched into his face by time. LIke most of us, he was smiling. It would have been hard not to smile after spending time on the beautiful Koh Samed island for it is a tropical paradise that quickly washes away one’s worries.
