A man boarding a bus in the Thai capital of Bangkok was hurt when, watching where he was putting his feet, he walked headfirst into an overhead fan hanging from the roof of the vehicle, causing annoyance.
Moys Kenwood, then 52, was boarding a number 147 bus at Bang Pa-kaeow to take him to Central Rama 2. He climbed the vehicle's steps, and, finding the bus 'teeming with life', he paid particular attention to where he was treading, to avoid standing on other people's feet, bags, dogs and chickens.
Up above, lurked danger.
Average Thai people being somewhat shorter than their western counterparts, most things are on a smaller scale in Thailand: women's breasts, and men's penises, for example, but also the height of buses.
Standing six feet tall, Kenwood was oblivious of the dirty, greasy fan that hung from the vehicle's roof, until it met with his scalp, and he cursed enough to turn the air blue. Other passengers looked on uninterested.
The collision later caused many of Kenwood's students to ask him:
"Teacher, what wrong your head?"
The incident was just one in a long line of embarrassing situations that the Englishman found himself in during his time in Bangkok.
The 147 bus is usually pink, but sometimes yellow.
