I have been to Phayao several times including last year. Cannot think of where this one is but there are a few intersections that are dangersou up there.

Funny, but I hope they are not spreading the sand and rice directly on the street or side of the street. That right there could be a cause for some of the accidents especially on a bike.

More than 50% of people believe in one god or another but doesn’t make any of them real, belief in supernatural phenomena is common but has never been proven scientifically in any shape or form and as science progresses the belief in such nonsense diminishes albeit gradually.

Make you right there Smiler. Perhaps as high as 90% in some countries.

Here in Thailand it's probably higher than that. But the average world-wide is brought down a bit by huge countries not having great beliefs.
