One morning I stepped out onto the porch of our guesthouse and saw that a photo shoot was beginning in the park surrounding Jongkham Lake. Five young men in ceremonial Thai Yai dress were posing for a gaggle of photographers. My favorite part was watching the white deer navigate across the lawn to pose as if it were grazing on a palm tree. The two boys inside had the toughest task, staying coordinated inside that beast of a costume.
