I don’t drive. I walk, even very long distances.
And sometimes I wonder how it can be possible to put yourself in such situations where your car, in the middle of Chiang Mai (which means you can’t drive too fast), hits a curb that’s fairly high and ends up in the middle of the moat surrounding the Old City.
I didn’t really witness the accident but I photographed the whole process of dragging the car to the edge and lifting it out of the moat with a pickup-crane. The whole scene, of course, attracted hundreds of tourists and locals quietly watching the three men working in the water. I was also quite surprised to notice that no policemen even tried to keep the crowd outside a security perimeter around the accident. I was actually standing right under the crane, next to the operator.
As far as I heard, the woman driving the car is fine (but terribly embarrassed).
Here are a few more shots of the scene.
Drive safe everyone!
