Holy Taxi

Less than one percent of Thais are Christian, so it’s uncommon to see images of Jesus, the Virgin Mary, and other idols like these in Bangkok taxis. On the left is a representation of St. Christopher on an enameled medal, who, similar to certain venerated Thai monks, is believed to offer safety to travelers on their journeys. And hopefully, St. Mary will also pray for us that we won’t encounter any bad traffic jams ever again.
