... alcohol and beer, locked away in a cage with an attendant. And, we received the side benefit of Shameful Foreigner Stinkeye when we made our purchase. So what gives?? This is a mainly Buddhist, and partially Hindu, nation. Thailand is both very Buddhist and very liquored up; same with India and Hinduism.
