Bad Things Happen

Gulf of Thailand, Cambodia
October 2010

“I wouldn’t go in there without shoes,” a middle-aged American woman tells me, as I follow a group into the jungle on a remote, idyllic island. “There are termites. They’ll bite you.” We keep going anyway, barefoot. “You’ll be sorry!” she calls out.

Bad things tend to happen to the people who will complain about them the most.
