Re: Dutchman Jumps From Hua Hin Hotel

This phenomena seems to be much more common in Pattaya--they call it "The flying farang" problem. There is a great suspicion there that many of them are pushed rather than slipped or jumped.

Re: The Best and Worst Airlines and Airports of 2018

I enjoy S'pore, surprised that HK is not in the top ten. The Tokyo airports are fine, but I don't find them outstanding.

Re: Good, reasonably priced wine

You are correct BB, I have not bought the boxes of wine for some time as a mate of mine goes to Cambodia twice a month and brings really cheap wine back. The 4l at 799 is no more and when I asked about it, the usual blank looks. All boxes 1000+
