Here’s a cheery way to start your day. Ben Blair sent me this video and it made me happy. It’s the true story of a soccer team from a floating village in Thailand.

During a trip to the south of Thailand, I actually got to visit and have lunch on a “floating village” like the one in the video. It was so interesting to see their waterborne way of life. In the Thai culture it’s considered poor form to show anger outwardly. No surprise it’s called “The Land of Smiles.” I think it’s a trait that the world could benefit from trying out a bit. :)
