Photo of the Day (03.18.08)

In my travels, I’ve discovered something about small towns — they each have something that is uniquely theirs, something they’re know for, a claim to fame if you will. In the town of Vegreville, Alberta, for instance, it’s the giant easter egg in the center of town that commemorates the Ukranian heritage. In the town of Hoi An, Vietnam, it’s the abundance of tailor shops, each ready to make you a custom suit at a bargain rate. And in Borsang, Thailand, it’s the handmade umbrellas that are their claim to fame. In fact, the town even holds an annual umbrella festival each year in January. Gadling reader Lady Expat was there, and luckily for us, she took this excellent photo.
