When we were up in Chiang Mai recently we took some family photos at a shop that dresses you up in traditional Thai clothes with all the fixings. Joshua was quite a character and the photographer got some real nice shots.

The photographer's assistant was playing peek-a-boo with Joshua to try to get him to look at the camera. Monkey see, Monkey do.
