Re: Valium/xanax in hua hin

^ Yes they're available all over; I got those at the G-Market pharmacy on Soi 88 extension, but they are very mild compared to Valium and didn't work for me. You may want to try one before you really need it to see if it works for you.

Re: TV series worth downloading

"Snowfall", an American series about the beginning and rise of crack cocaine use centered in Los Angeles is a good one. BBC2 has picked it up if you get that over there.

Re: Medical Insurance in Thailand or anywhere for that matter

I simply kept 1m baht in a bank account to cover medical expenses. I don't know if things have changed in the last 3 years, but then that amount would pretty much cover any illness, surgery, or hospital stay. My wife had surgery and was in a good Bangkok hospital for nearly a week and it cost less ...
