Patong, Phuket Island, Thailand

How do you make gasoline available to the scooters that skip all over central Patong?  You sell it roadside for about $1.30 a bottle.  It's far less space-consuming than a whole service station.  Far more interesting than gasoline, however, is the linguistic landscape and what it tells you about Phuket Island.  [2011]
