Thai Cowboys

September 09, 2014  •  Leave a Comment

Mahouts are some badass dudes
sticking together like a brood
the passion in action and language is remarkable
as they bond to their giant like a spirit or guardian angel
suited to signify their commitment and cause
hours of attendance
    as separation  from their beast is like breaking a law.
Thailand's cowboy
but rougher and tougher
not intending to kill unless you mess with their brother
   or sister
a joy that never withers as their story is unspoken and beautifully depicted
their beast is their voice.
  

Over the next few days I will be doing a mahout posting series that will feature some of the quotes and testimony from the mahouts in Lampang.
