I asked Angie where she came from, and she said Korat, which is one of
the biggest towns in Issan, in the northeast. I said she didn't look like an
Issan person: they tend to be small, with squidgy little noses if they are of
ethnic Lao descent, as most are, or they are small and dark if they have Khmer
blood. Angie said that her father is half Indian, and that helps explain those
startlingly good looks of hers - the big liquid eyes, the lovely bone structure.
As you can see, she is also a relaxed kind of girl who enjoys a laugh, and we
got on famously.
