... I'm assuming it was some kind of elegant cooling system - see picture. However, from Bangkok to Mae Sot...no such luck. I board a bus that will take me to the plane (common in Asia). We drive by this purple propeller plane that looks like it was built in the 70s. I chuckle to myself thinking its some sort of retro display. But then the bus stopped. And people started getting out.
