I've become accustomed to the beautiful blue and white Portuguese tiles that mark each street in Macau. They make the street signs in America feel cold and utilitarian, which I suppose is what they're aiming for.
The street signs here in Chiang Mai (when you can find them) are gorgeous little works of art. I stopped to take a photo of this one and marked myself as a tourist, attracting half a dozen touts trying to get us to take a tour of the city in their taxi or tuk tuk. Not this time, boys.
