Re: Weather in Hua Hin & Thailand

As an FYI, Hua Hin now has its own radar loop. See below link.

Looking at the center of the source, the device(s) must be in one of the Thai Navy buildings/sites directly adjacent to the beach. Pete :cheers:

Re: Tips for recycling and reducing plastic use in Thailand

Yes, I agree wholeheartedly. If the theory is correct we should start to see pollution of all types decreasing in China, Vietnam, India, and also here in Thailand. I hope!

Indonesia, Cambodia, Burma, Philippines and Laos have much further to go IMO. Pete :cheers:

Re: Tips for recycling and reducing plastic use in Thailand

More examples of what is going into the Pacific Ocean from that place. I think it's fair to say the greater the poverty, the greater the pollution.

Re: Tips for recycling and reducing plastic use in Thailand

The below location may top Thailand, but only by a very slight margin. It's Manila bay.

Re: Tips for recycling and reducing plastic use in Thailand

These turtles feed on jellyfish. Nothing looks more similar to a floating jellyfish than a white plastic bag undulating and swaying with the current. The Thai Navy turtle breeding and rescue sanctuary in Sattahip restocks the sea with thousands of baby sea turtles each year. I dread to think how man...

Re: IKTS 2018/2019

I really need to resist the temptation of 3X Bankers, they are so sweet though when you hit them. I should have done the math last year as at best I probably only broke even on them, plus losing other bonus points by resetting back to zero Banker. :( Pete :cheers:
