The recent blackening out of the logo of a Thai Airways aircraft after it had skidded off the runway at Suvarnabhumi airport in Bangkok is typical of the way many people in Thailand still believe in the 'íf you didn't see it yourself then it didn't happen principle'. The attempt by the airline to protect its image has really backfired.

I read an article in the Bangkok Post today about the number of homeless westerners in Thailand. It is quite sad really. Here is a quote from the article:

I live in a condominium complex run by a major player in the condo business here in Bangkok. They have many complexes all over Bangkok and I expect they are all the same when it comes to living in them. I can assure you that this is the best community I have ever lived in, and I have lived in many around the world.

I was browsing the internet today and came across this pic of what I first thought was Soi Cowboy years ago. But I was wrong !!  It is in Hamburg, Germany. Copy cats or what. I have always known that Germany was high up in the sex tourism charts ( I lived there for 3 years ) but trying to imitate Soi Cowboy is not on :)

I have been living in Bangkok for a lot of the last 8 years. There are 3 things that continue to cause me stress and I don't think I will ever get used to them. I am sure I am not alone with these issues......I will list them for you - not in any particular order.

This is getting to be a regular thing for me, and this is the last time I am going to post about it. I am bored I have just heard of yet another Thai bar girl / farang marriage failing in exactly the same way as many have failed in the past.
