This is a great video about a tourist visiting Thailand (James aka Oliver Smith) who loses his VISA. Ultimately, the story is about making judgments and making friends, with some rock throwing at a truck, the kindness of a pretty girl buying drinks, and whole town looking for his lost bag with lanterns in the middle of the night.

So, I’m having a slow day at work and started to check out the Shelfari site which looks pretty cool. This is a great website for readers.
Shelfari promotes its “virtual bookshelf” as one of its main features. The virtual bookshelf displays covers of books which the user has entered, with popups to show the user’s book information (review, rating, and tags). Sorting by author, title, date, rating, or review is available to the viewer of the shelf. Users may organize books into different shelves, including already read, currently reading, planning to read, wish list, currently owned, and favorites.
If you are an avid reader and you want to learn more about the hottest book releases, there is no longer a need for you to search further to find the best books that will suit your taste and style. With Book Trailer Cinema, you can now find the official trailers of some of the latest book releases to help you discover and pick the best reads out of the tens of thousands of titles being published every single day!
